'Mr Nikolic said he then called the steward that he was "a f . . king grub" and "a c . . t of a thing."'

I've often found when someone calls me that it is rarely in isolation.

Usually one or both of us say something pertinent before or after that sentence.

Why didn't VCAT tell us?

Jockey Danny Nikolic has revealed police and stewards are investigating at least four races in which he rode as part of their race-fixing probe.

Nikolic said owners, trainers and other jockeys had told him they had been questioned over the races, adding to the stress of his appeal against a two year disqualification for threatening chief steward Terry Bailey and being questioned over the murder of his ex-father-in-law Les Samba.

During evidence at his appeal hearing on Wednesday, Nikolic said stewards had questioned others about races at Kyneton and Bendigo.

It is already widely known that investigations are underway into a race won by the horse Smoking Aces at Cranbourne in February 2011 and another won by Bolton at Caulfield in February this year.

Nikolic said he had heard of jockeys being quizzed as to whether they had seen him and other jockeys go to the toilet in the jockeys' room and whether they had seen money change hands.

"Trainers have been sent DVDs (of races) and asked to make statements," he said."

Nikolic said he had been questioned by police in relation to only one of the races.

Along with the Damien Oliver betting case which resulted in a 10-month ban for the champion jockey, the race-fixing investigation is one of a number of issues that have rocked Victorian racing in recent months.

Not getting any better for him!

Counsel for Racing Victoria Philip Dunn QC said that Mr Nikolic was out of control when he had allegedly clicked his tongue to "make a gun sound" when he walked past former Tasmanian chief steward Wade Hadley outside the hearing room at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal in Melbourne.

Mr Hadley said that the jockey had clicked his tongue for a second time and winked at him when he looked up at him.

It'll be goodnight nurse for him if there's any CCTV capturing vision of the exchange and the allegations made .......acceptance of this evidence might be enuff.

Racenet reports:-.......

Steward claims Nikolic made more threats
Former Tasmanian chief steward Wade Hadley has accused embattled jockey Danny Nikolic of threatening and intimidating him during the riderís on-going appeal hearing at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Appeals tribunal.
Hadley, who recently joined the Racing Victoria stewards team was on the panel at Seymour on September 4 when Nikolic was accused of threatening chief steward Terry Bailey.
Hadley told the VCAT hearing on Thursday that Nikolic had sat next to the steward outside the VCAT office during a recess in evidence and said, "You are going up in the world. Letís see where you end up. Look at you, you are a f****** fine specimen of a human being. You are all tarred with the same brush. You can't even make f****** eye contact."
Racing Victoriaís legal counsel Phillip Dunn also told the hearing that Nikolic had "clicked his tongue like a gun sound" on two occasions in the vicinity of Hadley.
Judge Michael Macnamara adjourned the matter until December 11. Racing Victoriaís legal counsel has requested CCTV footage from outside the VCAT office in an attempt to gain evidence of their allegations.

When they finish with Danny, they'll take a deep breath, and then turn their attention to the alleged involvement of  :censored: in WA race fixing ... or not.

But I don't know anything about that, personally, and have nothing more to add.

I get that all the time from forum members on the soapbox threads. I can hear them.

It can be a tough job being a steward   :biggrin:

My interpretation is that he has no issue with him because he never did the wrong thing by him or his horses.

Those who choose to pontificate and to take the high moral ground are either underachievers or have something to hide.

I thought that is who was running Vic racing D & D.

Everyone was happy, very few complaints.

Now a new crew will take over and there could be quite a settling in period.

Nikolic heads back to VCAT for penalty sentencing

By Adrian Dunn TVN Monday, February 11, 2013 - 3:21 PM

DANNY Nikolic will return to the Victoria Civil & Administrative Tribunal on Tuesday, February 19 when submissions will be heard over penalty.
 
VCAT Judge Michael Macnamara dismissed Nikolicís appeal against a two year disqualification for threatening Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey and his family at Seymour in September last year.
 
Nikolicís appeal against the penalty was rejected by the Racing Appeals & Disciplinary Board.
 
The jockey then took his appeal to VCAT, but Judge Macnamara rejected it in late December.
 
Racing Victoria is still awaiting results of tests before inquiries into Tony Vasil and Nathan McPherson proceed.
 
No date has been set for the RAD Board to deliver its finding in the Robert Smerdon case.
 
Smerdon pleaded not guilty to conduct prejudicial to the image, interest and welfare of racing when he handed about $11,000 Ė given to him by friend and client and professional punter Mark Hunter - to Damien Oliver Ė winnings from a bet he placed on Miss Octopussy at Moonee Valley on October 1, 2010.
 
RV Integrity General Manager Dayle Brown said today that two additional members to the Compliance Assurance Team will be named at the end of the month.

VCAT varies Nikolic disqualification
The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has altered the terms of controversial jockey Danny Nikolicís two-year ban for threatening Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey.

VCAT rejected Nikolicís appeal against a two-year disqualification in December last year but has halved the disqualification period at a hearing in Melbourne on Tuesday.

VCAT vice-president Judge Macnamara reduced the second year of Nikolicís disqualification to a suspension, which would enable the jockey to ride trackwork from September this year before returning to race riding in September 2014.

Racing Victoriaís legal counsel argued VCAT should keep Nikolicís ban intact or increase the penalty due to his history with chief steward Terry Bailey, the jockeyís admission he gave false evidence at the original Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board hearing and his alleged threat to another Racing Victoria steward outside a VCAT hearing in 2012.

Nikolicís legal representative Jack Rush QC said Nikolicís behaviour was not as detrimental to the industry as the betting scandal that resulted in a 10-month ban for Damien Oliver.





I don't agree with the learned Rush QC's opinion....Oliver didn't threaten to harm anyone....and the penalties support that Nickolic's offence was worse. :shutup:

Meanwhile the three small time gambling jockeys are hit with fines of $1000...none of them collected on their bets. :whistle:

100%

EDIT: Nikolic will serve the second year as "suspended" ... meaning
it is business as usual after that ... just a view.
