Greyhound Racing Victoria “alarmed” by Jubilea Bale’s positive meth test

VICTORIAN greyhound racing has been devastated by news that a dog has returned a positive urine test to methamphetamines.

Jubilea Bale, trained by Jenny Hunt, the daughter-in-law of disgraced trainer Graeme Bate, tested positive to amphetamine and methamphetamine in a post-race test after it won at Warragul on January 17.

It is Victoria’s first positive swab to “meth’’ — and Australia’s second.

Hunt is likely to be handed an unprecedented penalty of many years disqualification if found guilty.

Bate was stripped of his Hall Of Fame status late last year after being disqualified for three years over five charges of administering banned substances to his greyhounds.

Greyhound Racing Victoria chief executive Adam Wallish described the meth revelation as “alarming”.

“It goes without saying that it is shocking that a greyhound could return a (positive) test to such a drug. It’s difficult to imagine,’’ Wallish said on Wednesday.

Jubilea Bale was withdrawn from a race at Sandown last Thursday after stewards became aware of the drug test findings.

Wallish would not speculate on a possible penalty for Hunt if found guilty but said “it’s a most serious offence.’’

Hunt has been invited to be present when stewards test the second, or B, sample in the next week or so as stewards continue their investigation.

Lets take the focus off the COBALT POSITIVES & throw it over to another dogs scandal as usual.
How many times do they have to do this to the sport.

Cheats are everywhere to do with sport & gambling.
Minority f*wits which do these things in sport, every sport has them.
It farks the rest of the industry that always does the right thing.
Gives ammo to the brain dead sheep of society.

Things are a lot different now than they were when I was a kid growing up.... next door neighbour trained a few dogs......would give them a physic before getting in the car to go to the races at Kedron or Rocklea to clean them out...once he gave them a kill asked me to pick it up and chuck it...no thanks Hec...another time outside Kedron he gave his dog to another bloke ..told me not to say that's Hec's dog when I saw it inside...I didn't know one black dog from another...so no danger there of spilling the beans and I remember the day at Kedron.....well known jockey Peter Morgan knocked his price off...heard him telling his wife he tightened the dog's collar.....in those days they raced in a thick leather collar ..no such collars today...and another guy I knew who trained a few dogs gave one a purple heart after he tried it on hisself.....it won so he said....probably no swabbing then....or could pay the swab guy off like the swab official at the trots who left under a cloud a long time ago.....anywhere there's money and gambling....there are those who break the rules if they think they can get away with it. Giddy Up. :beer:

SCANDAL ABOUT TO ROCK GREYHOUND INDUSTRY – SEVEN QLD TRAINERS STOOD DOWN

THE rumour mill is in over-drive that a massive scandal is about to rock the greyhound industry in Australia.

The authorities in three states have allegedly been informed by a national television program that it has damning footage of ‘live kills’ by greyhounds which it plans to air.

The latest state dragged into the controversy appears to be Queensland where seven trainers have been stood down in the past two days.
Racing Queensland issued a media release on Wednesday that it had been advised of the execution of a warrant by the RSPCA and Queensland Police relating to the alleged conduct of a licensed greyhound trainer.

Racing Queensland General Manager Stewards and Integrity Operations Wade Birch said as a result of information received from those authorities, a licensed trainer had been stood down in accordance with the RQ Licensing Scheme Policy.

“While the investigations into these matters are in their infancy, stewards deemed the allegations required immediate action to prevent the continued participation of those involved and enacted proactive measures in accordance with the policy,” Mr Birch said.

“The licensee will not be permitted to train or race greyhounds until these investigations are complete and Racing Queensland will continue to liaise with and assist both the QPS and the RSPCA.”

Queensland Greyhound Racing Board Chairman Michael Byrne QC said the board strongly supported the proactive measures taken by stewards and Racing Queensland’s Licensing Committee.

THIS was followed up by another media release today (Thursday) which reads:

Racing Queensland advises a further six trainers have been stood down by its Licensing Committee at the recommendation of stewards following the execution of a warrant yesterday by the RSPCA and QPS.

RQ General Manager of Stewarding and Integrity Operations Wade Birch said the trainers had been stood down and their greyhounds scratched from all competition pending an investigation by those authorities.

“Stewards exercised their powers pursuant to Racing Queensland’s Licensing Policy to prevent these individuals from continuing to participate until the investigation is complete,” Mr Birch said.

“This decision was based on further information received by Racing Queensland, the substance of which required immediate action by stewards.”

“Racing Queensland will continue to liaise with the QPS and RSPCA as their investigation continues.”

A message from GRNSW to members -


On Monday night, Four Corners will air a program on the national greyhound industry.

From what GRNSW understands, the program will primarily deal with integrity and welfare, with a particular focus on the abhorrent and barbaric practice of live baiting.

There is likely to be additional allegations about widespread cheating including drug use and race-fixing. The euthanasia of healthy young dogs and the welfare of our greyhounds will also be examined. The angle is likely to be that there is now more money than ever in the sport of greyhound racing and people within it will do whatever it takes, no matter what the consequence for these poor animals, to get a slice of the financial benefits.

Last Wednesday, as many of you would know, there were simultaneous raids conducted by the RSPCA and police in three states and shocking allegations of live-baiting have surfaced as a result. GRNSW, nor any of the other state controlling bodies, were aware of the raids prior to them taking place. It is not a coincidence that Four Corners has been developing this story and these raids have taken place just days before the program is due to air.

It goes without saying that the practice of live-baiting is not welcome in this sport. Not only is it a breach of greyhound racing rules, it is a criminal offence punishable under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and can attract a jail term of up to two-years and a fine of up to $22,000.

Following the raids, GRNSW immediately stood down the five people targeted by the RSPCA as well as another participant who was the subject of a GRNSW led inspection. This reflects the zero tolerance GRNSW and the majority of those in the industry have against people who engage in acts such as live baiting.

It is extremely disappointing that there are still people in this sport that partake in this practice or are complicit in its continuation. GRNSW has been very clear that community standards regarding the treatment of animals have changed significantly over the years and it is disappointing that some in this sport have not moved with the times.

Given the events of the last few days, mainstream media have already run stories on the greyhound racing industry. These will continue to increase in the coming days and possibly weeks, depending on the magnitude of the allegations.

Make no mistake. This story will be explosive, emotive and extremely damaging to the future of this sport in Australia.

In response, GRNSW will be making an announcement in the coming days about the establishment of an independent taskforce which will investigate training methods used by trainers in NSW, arrangements for the control, supervision and registration of trial tracks, breaking-in centres and training facilities, whether GRNSW and relevant agencies have the necessary powers to properly investigate allegations of animal cruelty and the resourcing at GRNSW to ensure it is appropriate to fulfil functions with respect to integrity and welfare.

We will also highlight the good work the industry does and the tremendous progress we have made in the areas of animal welfare, integrity and re-homing.

As a group of people that purport to love the greyhound breed we should all be shocked and outraged by the allegations in the story and prepared to fight the small minority that continue to partake in such practices jeopardising the future of the sport and indeed the future of the breed itself.

You may be emotional, you will be angry. Do not be angry at those that attack us, regardless of their position. Be angry at those within the sport that are doing the wrong thing and providing the ammunition to attack all of us.

If you have any information regarding animal cruelty within the NSW greyhound racing industry, you should contact GRNSW immediately on (02) 8767 0500 and ask to talk to the GRNSW Welfare and Compliance Unit.

This time is a testing one for all in the industry and we need to stay resolute in our desire to conduct ourselves in a manner that is compliant with social standards and expectations. The future of the sport and the wonderful greyhound breed necessitates it.

Yours faithfully
THE DOGS

Chief Executive

Why Matt? did you put any thought into why I wrote what I did or did you just happily jump on the sensationalist bandwagon? Read the original piece posted.

If the authors can't get some simple maths right then I really start to doubt their journalistic credibility.

There is bad eggs in every sport but if you read the clap trap to promote the show you'd think everyone is a crook ..... that's what deserves a emthdown

How do you come to the conclusion the article is misleading ?




Making a Killing




This week Four Corners reporter Caro Meldrum-Hanna leads a gritty investigation into the darkest secrets of the sport, exposing the gruesome underbelly of greyhound racing.

This investigation will rock the industry, and the sport, to its core.

Making a Killing reveals widespread cheating and illegality across the country, and throws into question the validity of thousands of greyhound races and millions of dollars.

How the cheating is actually done is so extreme it defies belief. What some trainers are prepared to do, to give their dogs the winning edge, will shock even the most hardened viewer.

Nice selectivity  :rolleyes:

Anyway just in that little section ..... thousands of races doesn't sound a little misleading to you??

Glad you just choose to ignore straight over what I was pointing out .... proves my point really.  emthdown

There is nothing else in the article except maybe the bottom line that is of any issue.

I object to this line in the GRNSW response:

You may be emotional, you will be angry. Do not be angry at those that attack us, regardless of their position. Be angry at those within the sport that are doing the wrong thing and providing the ammunition to attack all of us.

This seems to be saying in advance "don't attack the media".

The media should be criticized when it deserves it. Any by jingoes doesn't it deserve criticize a lot of the time.

I will reserve my judgement, and any criticisms I have until after I watch the show.

Well if you're too stupid to see the sensationalism than you can't be helped.

btw - don't take this for defending the indefensible, just the rubbish used to promote it.

The biggest issue I have with it is that they lied to most participants who will be in the show and said it was a goodwill piece...

that being said its not just live baiting but also race fixing and doping. The program has been in the works for a good 5 months now AFAIK.

Hopefully they do somethig on cobalt

They seriously believed that Four Corners would be dedicating a 1 hour show to the joy of Greyhound Racing?

Anyone got an informed opinion on whether the secret footage would be admissible as evidence in a criminal prosecution?
