Macquarie National News

Darren Weir and two of his horse training associates have been slapped with several charges by Racing Victoria.

Weir, along with Jarrod McLean, has also been issued with show cause notices in which they must convince racing authorities why they shouldn’t lose their training licences.

Stewards expect to release a report based on hearing submissions later today.

All of Weir’s and McLean’s runners this weekend have since been scratched by order of the stewards.

Stablehand Tyson Kermond is also facing charges.

All three have been accused of failing to co-operate with authorities.

These are not police charges.
