Allanson Reports Reveals 692 Bets In Fake Name

Monday, 10th March 2008

Racing Victoria's report into the betting activities of former chief executive Stephen Allanson under the alias "Jack Hindon" revealed Allanson "concealed his betting under the alias for over 4 years (from October 2003-November 2007) in which time he made 692 bets with bookmaker Rod Cleary". The bets "ranged from the lowest $20, to the highest $400" & over the period Allanson lost over $7,000. Allanson said he used the alias "for privacy reasons". The report noted: "After extensive review & analysis, nothing has emerged to provide an alternative explanation as to why Allanson engaged in this practice. There was no falsification of Rod Cleary's betting sheets (other than the alias): all bets were settled & paid for and Allanson did not grant any favours to Cleary in connection with bookmaking issues."
