Racing Victoria to consider whether Weir eligible to win trainers’ premiership

«It is absolutely an issue that we will consider. There is no precedent,» Kruger said.

A police investigation into the Weir stable remains ongoing with police preparing a brief of evidence for the office of public prosecutions to consider while the stewards have been clear that their investigation remains open despite the Weir disqualification.

The RAD board is yet to set a date to hear the charges against Warrnambool trainer Jarrod McLean, who police also arrested and released without charge on the day the Weir stables were raided.

Weir sold his Ballarat stables last week to Ciaron Maher Racing after deciding to not contest the Racing Victoria charges that led to his four-year disqualification. His horses have been dispersed among Victorian trainers.

Three horses — Yogi, Nature Strip and Hawkshot — that were trained by Weir until the raid occurred won at Caulfield on Saturday.
