Racing Victoria considers Aquanita action

Racing Victoria will shortly decide whether to appeal the fresh penalties handed down to the Aquanita trainers as well as whether to disqualify horses involved in the bicarb scandal.

Racing Victoria chairman Brian Kruger said the governing body had until January 29 to appeal the recent Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) penalties before it considers the potential of disqualifying horses that were illegally treated with bicarb.

"With Aquanita, the decision was handed down on New Year’s Eve from VCAT," Kruger told RSN 927.

"We and other parties have until the 29th of January to make a decision to whether or not appeal those penalties handed down from VCAT.

"Once that appeal period has finished, Racing Victoria will turn its mind to whether or not to make an application to have horses disqualified as a result of it.
