Racing Victoria (RV) stewards advise that they have considered the ruling of Racing New South Wales (RNSW) under AR 23 with respect to the indictable charges laid against Mr Damion Flower (see here).
The RV Stewards will immediately adopt the RNSW interim conditions, pending the hearing and determination of the RNSW show cause hearing, meaning that (in summary):
- Prizemoney earned on Victorian races by Mr Flower (including through a company or a syndicate) will be frozen;
- Mr Flower’s colours are prevented from being used in Victorian races, trials or jump outs; and
- Mr Flower is prohibited from participating in the Victorian thoroughbred racing industry.
RV Stewards will continue to monitor the situation and take any further steps as deemed necessary.
