Autopsy Conducted For Black Caviar Half-Brother Jimmy As Investigation Continues
Published December 31, 2013
An autopsy "has been conducted on the body of Black Caviar's half-brother Jimmy to determine the cause of the illness" that led to the A$5M ($4.6M) thoroughbred being put down, according to Bartley & Butler of the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. Meanwhile, "investigations into the colt's former owner Bill Vlahos are continuing." Vlahos' trustee in bankruptcy "is preparing to trace the proceeds of the racing identity's failed punting club The Edge as Racing Victoria investigators and company administrators trawl through the books and records" maintained by Vlahos' BC3 Thoroughbreds. Racing Victoria's investigation into BC3 "is likely to prompt a shake-up of rules governing how investors buy shares in racehorses." Autopsy results "will not be available until pathology tests have been done." This "could take weeks because of the holiday break." Melbourne University Equine Hospital associate professor Chris Whitton said, "All horses here that are insured have autopsies carried out" (SMH, 12/31). In Melbourne, Drill, Rule & Stewart wrote Racing Victoria Integrity Services GM Dayle Brown said that "the investigation into BC3 was continuing." Brown said, "The scope of our investigation into BC3 Thoroughbreds and the operation of its racehorse ownership business is broad. We are not at this time specifically investigating any treatments which may have been administered to Jimmy" (HERALD SUN, 12/29).
