Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) Stewards have issued a charge against licensed trainer-driver John Justice under Australian Harness Racing Rule (AHRR) 193(1) which states:

A person shall not attempt to stomach tube or stomach tube a horse nominated for a race or event within 48 hours of the commencement of the race or event.

It is alleged that Mr Justice attempted to stomach tube the horse ‘Carload’ on 27 January 2018, a day on which that horse was nominated to race at the Tabcorp Park Melton harness racing meeting.

HRV Stewards also issued a further charge under AHRR 187(2), alleging that Mr Justice gave false evidence at a subsequent Stewards inquiry.

The charges will be heard by the HRV Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) Board on a date to be fixed.
