CURRIE-TRAINED HORSES TRANSFERRED

CURRIE-TRAINED HORSES TRANSFERRED

Queensland stewards have allowed 26 horses to be moved from Ben Currie’s stables to other trainers with some nominated for upcoming races.

Currie is barred from nominating horses for meetings after Racing Queensland invoked Australian Racing Rule AR 55. He has sought a judicial review of the decision which allows RQ to refuse his nominations without giving a reason.

Currie will also be sentenced this week after being found guilty on two counts of bringing racing into disrepute involving text messages.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission chief steward Peter Chadwick said permission had been given for 26 horses to be transferred to other trainers.

“We will treat applications to move horses on a case by case basis,” Chadwick said.

“You will see some of the horses have been nominated by other trainers for meetings later this week.”
