Facing disqualification

DARREN WEIR is facing a four year disqualification from racing following an 11-hour show-cause hearing on Monday night with Racing Victoria staff.

The nation’s leading trainer has decided not to fight charges relating to possession of jiggers and conduct damaging to the welfare of racing.

The charges will be heard at a later date, but until then the 48-year-old is not permitted to enter or race any horses as a trainer or owner.

Fellow trainer Jarrod McLean will contest similar charges and until they are heard he will not be able to receive any horses that were in the care of Weir as at January 30 this year.
