Gai Waterhouse Fined, John Singleton Charged Over More Joyous Affair
Published May 14, 2013
NOT GUILTY PLEA: The AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL REVIEW's Fiona Carruthers reported Waterhouse was "charged with failing to report a condition that could affect the running of a horse and failing to keep complete treatment records." Waterhouse "pleaded not guilty to the two charges laid under Australian racing rules." She "has been given a week to prepare her case before the Racing NSW inquiry, which will resume next Monday" (AFR, 5/13). In Sydney, John Lehmann reported former jockey Allan Robinson "threatened to offer sensational new evidence," but only if Johns and Hayson "returned to the inquiry." The trio had "completed their evidence when Robinson came back after a lunch break to stun racing stewards with his ultimatum." Robinson's lawyer Chris Murphy said, "He wants the truth to come out," adding Robinson was now prepared to "tell the truth and the whole truth" (DAILY TELEGRAPH, 5/14).
