Aust Jockey Dan Nikolic Sacked By Mauritius Stable
In Mauritius overnight, the Guy Fok stable dramatically terminated the riding contract of Australian jockey Dan Nikolic (who has ridden 5 winners since arriving in April) after receiving a report of a confrontation with Mauritius Turf Club stewards. Fok stable trainer Budheswar Gujadhur announced on the MTC website: "We have been called by the racing stewards after an incident in the stewards' room during which Danny Nikolic showed disrespect towards the racing stewards. Following this meeting, we have decided to terminate Danny Nikolic's contract. There are things that we can't accept."
