Moodie Quits RV Board

Friday, 16th December 2016

David Moodie yesterday resigned from the board of Racing Victoria after an investigation cleared him as the source of a leak in the Danny O'Brien and Mark Kavanagh cobalt case, reports racing.com. The investigation was conducted by the Racing Integrity Commissioner, Sal Perna. In a statement issued last night, acting chairman Mike Hirst said: "The investigation centred upon allegations regarding the external dissemination of information from RV in January 2015 relating to the detection of positive cobalt swabs by licensed trainers Mark Kavanagh and Danny O'Brien." The statement continued: "In considering the report from Mr Perna, the RV Board heard representations from David Moodie, who stood aside from his duties as RV Chairman on 14 October, 2016 pending the outcome of the investigation." Hirst added: "Mr Perna's report found that David Moodie was not the source of the leak from Racing Victoria. Given that fact, David today tendered his resignation from the Board of Racing Victoria with immediate effect to devote his energies to his personal operations."
