Vic Trainer Threat To "Shoot Jumpers & Cut Off Heads"
Racing Victoria stewards yesterday charged trainer David "Butch" Londregan with "with making comments prejudicial to the image of racing" following his headline-hogging threats to video his jumpers being shot, cut off their heads & send to the Minister for Racing, Racing Victoria & the protest group against jumping races. Londregan's widely-reported threats followed last week's decision by Racing Victoria to suspend jumps racing in that state. The charge will be heard before the Racing Appeals & Disciplinary Board "at a time & date to be fixed". (May 12)
