Tuesday, 2 March 2010: John Nikolic has decided to hand in his trainer's licence to Queensland Racing.

Nikolic and NSW country jockey John Keating are embroiled in an inquiry into the running and handling of Baby Boom at the Gold Coast in January.

The inquiry was opened after stewards established that a large volume of money was placed on the horse to lose with betting agency Betfair.

Baby Boom finished fourth as the $1.30 favourite in a Maiden Handicap (1000m) at Caloundra on January 3.

Chief steward Wade Birch has interviewed a professional punter in Melbourne who also acts as a commission agent.

Evidence was also taken from Nikolic regarding his association with a Gold Coast punter who has declined requests from stewards to assist in their investigations.

Nikolic, who moved to the Gold Coast late last year after a successful stint in Malaysia, told Brisbane radio on Tuesday that the inquiry had affected his family.

"I came back to enjoy training as a hobby but it hasn't been enjoyable lately and it's had a negative impact on my family," he said.

When I saw that weeks ago I thought they can't let go of the name Nikolic...I still think Danny was hard done by and would take Bailey's word of what transpired with a pinch of salt.

Relevance?  The swab on John's horse came back positive.  Guilty as...are you suggesting the stewards should ignore the facts just to give the bloke a break because of his name?

I think we should discuss any John Nikolic issues in this thread I do not think we should besmirch Danny Nikolics reputation.

Given the massive leader bias that I saw I was staggered when Holt was fighting and reefing and trying to drag Wonderful Jester back into the field when posted 3 wide.

Could have slid up easily and his last run was fantastic up on the pace.....why go back. Who's the trainer :chin:

Also, I thought it was a nice touch from ms Schmidt to rip her horses head off in an attempt to let master Holt try and slot over.. I would have thought that if your horse was travelling and you had the short priced favourite trapped off the track, you'd be happy to keep it there :chin:

maybe they know each other quite well and it was a mate looking after a mate  :lol:


Note the date and the horse

Guilty
23 years in the slammer. Expect Mair to be along soon to plead a case of innocence for him
