Townsville Trainer Butts Has Licence Cancelled
Queensland Racing's licensing committee yesterday informed Townsville trainer Terry Butts that, following a "show cause" hearing on October 7, his trainer's licence had been cancelled. The hearing "considered a number of false statements & claims" made by Butts & his "admitted failure to verify any of the claims with QR before publishing them". The "show cause" notice was issued to Butts "following false claims & statements he made in an article in the North Queensland Register" on August 28.
