Champion Gr 1 earning jockey Chris Moon faces new stewards’ claims over illegally injected horses

Former champion jockey and now Brisbane’s chief racehorse trainer Chris Moon is the subject of the latest investigation by Queensland racing stewards.

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) has seized hours of CCTV footage from its Eagle Farm stables and can monitor it closely for any suspicious activity by Munze and his Foreman son Cory.

A brand new group of governors has been convened to hear “new evidence” early next month.

The panel had previously investigated allegations of needles in the banned 24-hour period before the race interval, but that was all cleared up with the introduction of this new panel.

The term “vacated” when used in authorized language means to set aside or set aside (judgment, contract or costs).

The audition may be in July, but what a past 48 hours it has been for the little jockey.

He saddled his first Gr 1 winner as a trainer on Saturday as Palaispan charged among the runners in the $700,000 Tatt’s Tiara, which Munce additionally won as a jockey.

“I’m so emotional,” he said after the race. These emotions can reach completely different heights in the coming weeks.

“Trainer Chris Munns and his master Cory Munns will face a QRIC management inquiry on July 3, 4 and 5, 2023,” a QRIC spokesman said. Racing Network.

The investigation follows an investigation into CCTV cameras from Munce stables seized in October 2020. The footage filmed that day was removed during the pre-race inspection at the Munce stables on October 2, 2020.

A brand new panel of stewards has been convened to investigate and re-examine the evidence.

“Tim Ryan KC will be an advisor assisting the stewards. As this is a new investigation, all previous charges have been dropped.

It all comes from this CCTV footage from the verification of this random barn in October 2020.

At the time, QRIC revealed that Munce was responsible for “six instances of injecting racehorses within one clear day of their participation”.

Munce was also charged with “two counts of administering an alkalizing agent to horses on race day, while his son was charged with two counts of complicity in administering an alkaline agent to horses on race day.”

The injections themselves are NOT a violation of the rules, however, there are strict guidelines and guidelines regarding the timing of injections, which can result in fines and suspension if these injection guidelines are violated or compromised.

Racing Rules National horses MUST NOT be injected with any substances on a free day of racing without the consent of the stewards.

At the time, the pictures pressed the hand of the QRIC to impose fines and bans on coach Muncei.

He was suspended for 3 months for his treatment of the mare Lady Brahmos, then Munce’s ban was reduced to a whopping $5,000 after an internal review.

Shortly after the QRIC finds, the mare was transferred to the stables of Stuart Kendrick.

All previous expenses are effectively deleted.

Munce has strongly maintained that he broke no law.

In his time, Munce was regarded as one of the many perfect drivers in the country and he is likely to be one of the few drivers to have ridden in the Australian Grand Slam majors: the Gr 1 Melbourne Cup; Gr 1 Caulfield Cup; Gr 1 Golden Slipper and Gr 1 Cox Plate.

Tata Tiara’s win on Saturday is the last race Munce’s Palaisipan will run as she has been offered in the Japanese pursuit and will be available for breeding at Arrowfield Stud NSW later this 12 months.
