Vic Trainers In Cranbourne Punch-Up

Tuesday, 22nd September 2009

Melbourne Cup-winning trainer Brian Jenkins & fellow trainer Ray Mathews "have accused each other of a king-hit in a heated incident at Cranbourne training centre," reported The Herald-Sun. Both Jenkins (who trained 1998 Cup winner Jezabeel & is preparing Figure Of Speech for this year's Cup) & Mathews "are facing improper conduct charges by Racing Victoria stewards for assaulting each other". At a Victorian Racing Appeals & Disciplinary Board hearing yesterday, both "admitted landing punches & as the fracas continued, Jenkins admitted to kicking Mathews in self-defence". The hearing resumes today.
