Why would you even be bothered looking at an application from Nikolic.  Just put it straight in the recycle bin where it belongs.

QRIC is obliged to follow proper process ....your comment might come true........but public opinion isn't a consideration ..after all the form filling is done and considered......  the final hurdle is  the fit and proper person test........others have done time and have been readmitted to the industry....... it's the same outside racing for those committing minor misdemeanors most eventually get a chance to rehabilitate themselves....it's enshrined in the system.

Arsenal , let me acknowledge firstly my own respect for your beliefs in a fair go system and the rules of justice. The problem I struggle with in this instance is that in this coves history there are many matters where several serious major crimes have not been solved.  Of course that does not suggest guilt . However in matters relating to the determination of  a " a fit and proper Person " they do not swing on the rule of Law.  Let these matters be resolved and see if he then is within the criteria.

Just watched the replays of the Dalby races Today. The complete ineptitude of Stewards never ceases to amaze me. When they interview some of these morons for these jobs  why don't they get someone with even a basic knowledge of Racing to test their skills.
They don't ; because I would suggest that those doing the hiring are just as incompetent as those applying. Watch the run of a well fancied runner in the last at Dalby. I think he ran 5th . I know the horse and I am the first to agree that he is limited (extremely) But so was the opposition. How  was he tailed off ten lengths against these cattle ? Don't go looking in the "Stewards Report" , you wont find anything there. Sure he was coming back in trip; but he is still a 1000 metre winner , so he is probably not getting ready for Oakbank.
The so called "Stewards " job is to ask the question. That is all they have to do . There are three possibilities why they didn't. A) they are simply incompetent B) they were in a hurry to get a home or C) they don't want to start something as one steward once said to me. The sad fact is that the taxpayer is forking out millions every year in the name of "Integrity". It isn't "Integrity". It is window dressing.

You would think the stewards would have asked for an explanation on the run of Tyres Are Crucial  it couldn't keep up early 15L away according to the caller but only beaten 1.2L started equal favourite @4.80 so while it's no world beater should go better  when in a more suitable race Bryan Dias would most likely sack it if he thinks it hasn't any prospects he's a good man with a horse IMO....this is the race plus it's under performing record from Racenet.

QRIC Media release
QRIC issues animal welfare direction after neglected racehorses found at a Pimpama property

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) has issued an animal welfare direction to the owners of two currently registered thoroughbred race horses found in various stages of neglect at a Pimpama property.

The Commission’s veterinarian and Integrity Investigations Team (IIT) attended the property earlier this week after the case was referred from the RSPCA.

Racing Integrity Commissioner Ross Barnett said sadly, one registered race horse had died on the property prior to Commission staff attending and due to the poor condition of a second horse, it was humanely euthanised yesterday.

“Two horses remain in a serious condition and arrangements are in place for their care,” he said.

“Whenever the Commission receives an animal welfare report, the response is swift and in this case it was immediate.”

Commissioner Barnett said an animal welfare direction has been issued directing the owners to immediately increase nutritional and feed intake under veterinary advice and to further address the health of the horses under the guidance of a veterinarian.

“Any change in the horses’ condition must be reported to the Commission and the owners must not move them from the Pimpama property without approval,” he said.

“The RSPCA referred the case to the Commission when it was established the horses are currently registered as race horses,” he said.

Since the Commission commenced, more than 30 Animal Welfare directions have been issued to racing participants.

If you have information about the mistreatment of racing animals or wrongdoing in racing, we urge people to report it on the QRIC Report Something portal on the QRIC website, call 1300 119 291 or contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

QRIC clarification of today’s statement
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) would like to clarify that the owners of the Pimpama property where two horses were the subject of an animal welfare direction today are in no way responsible for the neglected horses.
The horses are on agistment only at the Pimpama property.
The owners of the horses to which the animal welfare direction was directed do not reside on the property.
The property owner has been cooperative in assisting the Commission in this investigation and the ongoing care of the neglected horses.

Catching up on recent stewards reports Glenn Stockdale .....Toan Thang elevated testosterone level Lab found it was the result of endogenous production due to unusual adrenal gland activity no penalty imposed

https://qric.qld.gov.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/2020-15-January-Stewards-Report-Glenn-Stockdale.pdf

On the other hand Michael Cahill wasn't so lucky tested positive to prohibited substances after taking Panadeine Forte for pain relief after suffering an injury he copped a two week suspension...rough justice IMO 

https://qric.qld.gov.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/2020-15-January-Stewards-Report-Michael-Cahill.pd

Finally Kym & Sonia Alford copped a three months suspension for making up a story on Interflora Express which suffered an injury in a barrier mishap the Alfords told the stewards a story that wasn't true .....very foolish when on the facts it appears they had no reason to lie.

Stewards report is on Queensland Racing website.

Extract from race 2

TUNERO –  Stewards questioned jockey M. McGillivray regarding the performance of the gelding, which weakened and finished a distant last. He indicated that after being slow to begin and overracing in the early stages the horse travelled comfortably until being placed under pressure near the 600m at which point the horse did initially respond to his riding however commenced to weaken and shorten stride from the 400m. He indicated he eased the horse down from the 250m.  A post race veterinary examination revealed the horse to be suffering from cardiac arrhythmia. Connections were advised that an veterinary clearance must be supplied and undergo an ECG, and also must trial satisfactorily prior to racing again.

Seeing the IR doesn't think it necessary to include reasons for decision or to include the particulars of the alleged offence I don't intend to waste any more time in publishing this type of report....... I've found out it's no point asking QRIC for further and better particulars.......there's a wall of silence there...yet RNSW and RVL always respond to any inquiry and within a reasonable time ..maybe the Hon. Hinchy could liven them up.

Racenet EXCLUSIVE on Danny Nikolic posted on the Danny Nikolic thread a few moments ago.

This is an extract on his application to QRIC reportedly he has outlaid $2M in legal action to date,

Nikolic applied for a jockey’s licence to ride in Queensland in late October and was advised it would take 5-10 days for an answer.

Three months later he was informed of the decision that his application had been refused.

Nikolic’s QRIC application was denied with the following determinations forwarded in correspondence;

    The Standard, endorsed by the QRIC on 1 July 2016, states that an applicant must be assessed as a fit and proper person to be granted a licence, including the ability to display good character and operate within the laws and regulations of the State of Queensland.
    Your poor record of racing disciplinary history in Australia with multiple breaches that involve abuse and threatening conduct towards racing officials in conjunction with your criminal record and convictions.

It appears from the Racenet story that Racing NSW has not made any decision on Danny Nikolic so there’s still a chance Peter V’landys might do a “Muncie” assuming the legislation referred to allows him that discretion.....it's a waiting game there.

Qld is still alive should he decide to test QRIC's decision.

If the passage Racenet quoted from QRIC correspondence is the extent of their determination to refuse Nikolic’s license application there may be more to come...the rules provide that... ]"Applicants will be notified in writing of the outcome of their application. Where the application is refused or varied an information notice will be issued to the applicant.The Commission may decline to give verbal information about a decision. In cases where an application has been declined, the applicant may apply to the Commission for a statement of reasons. The Commission must provide the applicant with a statement of reasons in relation to the decision within twenty-eight (28) days in writing.[/b]

QRIC goes further in defining what is meant by  the “Fit and Proper Person Test” .....the “Fit” part deals mainly with ability to perform the tasks required by the license.... in Nikolic’s case  it presents no impediment ....he is an accomplished jockey.

The “Proper” part relates to the general level of integrity of the person. It is primarily concerned with general behaviour and conduct inclusive of:”•history;•reputation;•integrity;•honesty;•character” and  previous racing disciplinary history .................. and where a licence holder or applicant for a licence has been convicted of or pleaded guilty to an offence in Queensland, any state or territory of Australia or in any other country....

Certain criminal convictions are outlined which are certain to result in a refusal .......these are serious criminal convictions  none of which as far as I know have been committed by Nikolic..........from what I have read his convictions in Victoria did not result in imprisonment they were on the low scale of offences against the person resulting in fines or other censure.

I've never met Danny Nikolic and that most probably applies to everyone else on here who has expressed an opinion on him .....we only know what we've read which others have written or said ....but I can understand his frustration with the decisions he is confronted with ..and in NSW  the outcome is still to be advised.

I don't dismiss the seriousness of the threats to Terry Bailey ..... it's obvious they continue to be held against him despite having served his time three years disqualification (two years served the final 12 months reduced to suspension) but no criminal charges were laid arising out of that matter .... the Casino exclusion order subsequently extended to race tracks was a star chamber affair....my recollection is his barrister was admitted but Nikolic was excluded...... he was obliged to retain another brief for his VCAT appeal.

While most posts I've seen are against him being re-licensed when his application was heard by VCAT there was considerable support from the Jockeys' union and others who were in a much better position that any of us to speak on his behalf....as it stands the refusals to grant a license has turned a 2 year DQ +1 year suspension into a life sentence.

Possibly this latest refusal will be the end of the road although he may decide to test the decision...note to self I must look up The Offenders Rehabilitation Act .

One case I'm aware of involved a harness trainer/driver king hitting a steward..he got life but was given an amnesty during the Queen's visit...both are still alive and well.

https://qric.qld.gov.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/2020-21-January-Steward-Report-Greg-Elkins.pdf

Stewards, after careful consideration with regard to both scientific and analytical evidence available to them were satisfied that the concentration of testosterone detected in the urine sample taken from BEE GEES BANDIT was of endogenous origin and/or as a result of endogenous activity. Stewards, although fully aware of the provisions under AHR Rule 190(1), with the evidence taken in its entirety deemed no charge nor conviction be imposed against trainer Elkins.

However, as in accordance with AHR Rule 195, which reads:A horse which has been presented for a race shall be disqualified from it if blood, urine, saliva, or other matter or sample or specimen taken from the horse is found to contain a prohibited substance.BEE GEES BANDIT was disqualified from its 3rdplacing in Race2 at Albion Park on 3rdAugust, 2019, and amended the placings accordingly.

 Racing Integrity Commission Stewards Report:Michael Lakey-EnterprisePrinceDate:22January2020Panel:D Aurisch, P Zimmermann & E BarronQueensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards today concluded an inquiry into a report from the analystthat the prohibited substance DEXAMETHASONEwas detected in urine sampletaken from ENTERPRISE PRINCEat Eagle Farmon 5 October 2019.

Stewards were mindful of Mr Lakey’s unblemished record over a long period. Stewards were also mindful of similar penalty precedents, the negative impact such breaches have on the image of racing and the need for a penalty to serve as an appropriate deterrent to ensure racing is conducted free of prohibited substances.
 Mr Lakey was subsequently fined$2000. Furthermore, under the provisions of AR. 240 (1) ENTERPRISE PRINCEwas disqualified from winning the above-mentioned race and the placing’s were amended .

Parliament resumes today one of the Bills listed in the Notice Paper's  explanatory notes deals with the QRIC .

Clarify the responsibilities of the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission Reforms established under the Racing Integrity Act 2016 separated the functions of the previous Queensland All Codes Racing Industry Board across two separate bodies:the Racing Queensland Board and the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (the Commission). The Racing (Transitional) Regulation 2016 provided for the Rules of Racing to be read and applied in accordance with the functions and powers provided to the Commission under the Racing Integrity Act 2016. The transitional regulation-making power has now expired so legislative clarification of the Commission’s powers under the Rules of Racing can now only occur through an Act amendment. Clarifying the Commissions powers by an amendment of the Racing Act 2002 in the Bill remains desirable despite recent changes to the Rules of Racing which have reduced the risk of legal challenge to the Commission’s powers.

QRIC clarifies use of prescribed drugs
Monday 10 February, 2020

Mark Oberhardt

Qld officials have alerted riders to rules regarding prescription medicines after several positives.

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission has moved to clarify rules regarding jockeys' use of prescribed drugs.

In the past few months several jockeys and track riders have been suspended after prohibited substances from prescription medicine showed up in random tests.

The positives range from riders using sleeping pills to pain killers such as Panadeine Forte.

A QRIC spokesperson said there was a lengthy explanation of the rules governing prescription drugs on the Commission's web site.

"The medication must be essential treatment for a substantial illness, condition or ailment suffered by the rider or horse handler," the spokesperson said.

"The medication must be prescribed by a medical practitioner who is a recognised specialist in the relevant field of medicine and the specialist must certify the nature of the illness, condition or ailment.

"Also that no alternative substance that is not a banned substance would serve the same medicinal purpose."

The spokesperson said it also needed to be certified that the medication would not affect a rider in a race, official trial, jump-out or track work.

"The the rider must before handling any horse, make application for permission to ride or handle a horse with a specifically prescribed banned substance in the person's system," the spokesperson said.

ENDS
Most citizens will be treated by their GP for whatever ails them without the necessity of waiting for an appointment with a specialist.... this is going too far IMO  fancy having to declare you're on medication in order to ride or handle a horse ...massive invasion of privacy ....bureaucracy gone bonkers. :o

Mr Langbroek  speaking in Parliament on the Agriculture Bill last Thursday the first part was on animal welfare following the 4Corners expose .he had this to say on QRIC ...an extract only for the full text click this link.

 https://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/documents/hansard/2020/2020_02_06_DAILY.pdf

Mr LANGBROEK: Let us turn now to the disciplinary record at QRIC. These results are pathetic. In 2017-18
QRIC won only five cases from 21 taken to QCAT.
Ms Grace interjected.Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER: Pause the clock. I will run the House. If you have a concern please write to the Speaker about it.
 Mr LANGBROEK:QRIC’s press conferences and media releases are about charges but most are discontinued before or at a prima facie level mainly for lack of evidence. David Gafa, a thoroughbred trainer from the Sunshine Coast, was found not guilty. It took two years to get to court. There were numerous mentions. There was a cost of $50,000. Now Mr Gafa has waited more than a year to see if he will be re-licenced by QRIC with no apology. Like others, Mr Gafa has felt criticism on social media and in the press. His business is down the drain, his wife is ill from stress and his family has been treated like pariahs and he is not guilty.

Thoroughbred trainer Bradley Smith had three charges brought against him. All were discontinued. Stan and Krystle Johnston had charges brought against them which were withdrawn after a year, after being raided by numerous police and investigators from QRIC.

Neale Scott, a former harness racing training course mentor, went 45 years without a charge and was then disqualified on the false testimony of a steward who was subsequently sacked. QRIC’s commissioner failed to correct the public record, nor did he reinstate Mr Scott outed because of false evidence. The commissioner did not even offer a re-hearing after knowing of lies sworn into evidence and unethically accepted.

This commission’s charter is integrity. Labor’s QRIC commissioner came out guns blazing against harness racing in 2017—The investigation (into harness race fixing) has revealed a level of sophistication and knowledge that is exhibited by organised crime. Really?
 Not one recorded conviction came out of that. In a press conference, the commissioner said that race fixing was ‘more frequent than it is rare’ and that ‘there is what I’ll call a loose cartel of drivers and trainers who are involved in systemic race fixing’.
However, in two years, there has not been one recorded conviction for race fixing.
The Labor appointed QRIC commissioner said, ‘We are talking about more than one race ... on the continuum of activity I’d have to say that it’s more frequent than it is rare.’ I repeat: no recorded convictions.
 In the annual report of 2016-17, the commissioner said that QRIC was ‘fully embedded’ with the Police Racing Crime Squad and in a 2017 Harnessbred.com interview he said that the Police Racing Crime Squad ‘sit with us’, yet at estimates he tells me that he has no control over charges made.

The 2017-18 QRIC annual report refers to ‘our partnership with the Crime and Corruption Commission through the Racing Crime Squad’. On 19 November 2018, the commissioner said, ‘We’re very fortunate to have a very dedicated police unit seconded to the Commission.’ In April 2017 he said, ‘What we’re talking about (with harness race fixing) is serious organised criminal activity.’
 It is now nearly three years later and still we are without a recorded conviction. QRIC has decimated harness racing with the commissioner’s shoot first and ask questions later bravado, backed at all times by Labor.
 The list of harness industry members whose charges failed to go anywhere is long and increasing: Vicki Rasmussen, case dismissed; Leonard Cain, case dismissed; Stuart Hunter, two charges discontinued; Dayl March, case dismissed; Peter Poulsen, case dismissed. The commissioner once sacked a chairman of stewards whose reinstatement was subsequently ordered by a tribunal.

The commissioner said that when he took over QRIC he knew nothing about racing. Appointing him shows Labor’s dismissal of the good working people of Queensland’s racing codes and Labor’s couldn’t-care-less attitude towards racing.

272Agriculture and Other Legislation Amendment Bill6 Feb 2020In February 2018, Minister Hinchliffe said—QRIC has proven to be a highly effective organisation ... QRIC has chalked up many successes in a strategic partnership with the Queensland Police Service Racing Crime Squad ... QRIC is the envy of the nation ... the organisation plays an important animal welfare role.
I have been to New South Wales and Victoria and met with the ministers. I can assure Labor that QRIC is not the envy of the nation, other than in terms of its funding which is up to double or triple that of the southern states. People have been stood down from plying their trade. They have been bullied with talk of 10 years in jail. Their relationships have been tested and livelihoods ended. The families of those involved need racing to flourish, but it cannot and it will not under Labor, because of the Palaszczuk government’s lack of understanding and lack of empathy for racing.

ENDS

Another case fell over today Shane Graham found no case to answer after charged with alleged race fixing on a race at AP in 2017......in an earlier trial the jury failed to agree and Graham was forced to undergo a re trial which started yesterday and finished today when Judge Julie Dick found he had no case to answer......pretty obvious decision should never have got to court.......would have been a very expensive exercise defending these charges.

QRIC is seriously a basket case which cannot justify the ridiculous staffing levels or multi-million budget (taxpayer's money).
The LNP must continue their campaign here ... QRIC is beyond a joke.
So many licensees have been hounded, bullied and erroneously charged that they should consider a class action.
Something has to happen as the current situation is unacceptable to the industry and the public.
