Darren Weir sells Ballarat stables to Ciaron Maher after four-year ban from racing

Disgraced racehorse trainer Darren Weir has sold his expansive Ballarat stables to co-trainers Ciaron Maher and David Eustace.

Weir has been banned from the sport for four years after electric-shock 'jiggers' were found in his bedroom during an early morning raid.

He was banned for possessing the outlawed devices, which are known to be used to mentally condition horses to run faster in races, and for behaviour prejudicial to the image of racing.

Maher refused to reveal the stable's purchase price, but confirmed he would be keeping as many existing stable staff as possible.
