Racing Victoria has lost a battle to deny a trainers’ licence to the wife of a disqualified trainer.

The Herald-Sun reports Deirdre Hope, the wife of Shannon Hope, will be able to train a small team after a Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal order on Wednesday.

Shannon Hope and his father Lee are serving a three-year penalty for cobalt offences.

Racing Victoria denied Mrs Hope a trainer’s licence, citing the rule that reads “no person, who in the opinion of the Principal Racing Authority, is a close associate of a disqualified person shall be permitted to train any horse.”

However, VCAT Wendy Boddison ordered RV to give Mrs Hope a restricted trainer’s licence with the following conditions:

Mrs Hope must live more than two kilometres from the stable at Seymour.
No more than six horses in the stable at any one time.
Not to race in the family’s racing colours (red and blue hoops, white sleeves).
Not to be employed by any company in which Carol Shinn (fatherin-law Lee’s partner) holds shares.
Racing Victoria has 28 days to decide whether to appeal the VCAT decision in the Supreme Court.
