CURRIE WINNER DISQUALIFIED

CURRIE WINNER DISQUALIFIED

Problems continue to dog trainer Australian trainer Ben Currie after stewards disqualified his last winner at Toowoomba, Pieridae, when his jockey weighed in light.

The Currie trained Pieridae led all the way to win Monday’s Class Three Handicap (1210m) which was also the last leg of the quadrella and treble. However, jockey Beau Appo was 0.8 kilograms under the handicapped weight and stewards disqualified the horse.

Currie faces a stewards inquiry on other matters this week and has also been asked to provide a reply to a Racing Queensland decision to consider rejecting his nominations.
