Racing Victoria stewards issued the charges on Friday, two days after they and Victoria Police officers from the sports integrity unit raided his stables at Warrnambool and Ballarat.

Trainer Jarrod McLean, 38, and licensed foreperson Tyson Kermond, 26, were quizzed at Racing Victoria's offices yesterday.

The Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners' Association (TROA) has questioned the timing of Racing Victoria Stewards in scratching runners from the Darren Weir and Jarrod McLean stables 90 minutes before the commencement of racing at The Valley.

It was subsequently announced on Friday that - following Weir's arrest and release without charge after search warrants acted upon by Victoria Police at two properties - he and McLean were both issued show-cause notices over the possible suspensions of their licences and refusal of entries.

Stewards then adjourned the show cause hearing until 4pm NZT on Monday.

A jigger is usually a small electrical device used in conjunction with a whip to stimulate a horse to run faster.

Racing Victoria stewards charged Weir on Friday relating to possession of three of the taser-like devices known as jiggers. It is used in training and the action is simulated on race day so the horse believes it is about to be shocked.

Canada Cuts Staff in Cuba After Another Diplomat Falls Ill
At least 26 US officials in Havana showed symptoms of vestibular disorders and brain damage that have befuddled doctors. She said the reduction also would help "those who in the United States use this issue to attack and denigrate Cuba".

Following the charges, Weir and McLean were invited to make submissions in light of show cause notices issued, requesting the trainers show cause as to why stewards should not deny their nominations/acceptors into races in the immediate future.

As well as the four jiggers, police allegedly found an unregistered firearm and a small amount of suspected cocaine.

"But, Darren Weir over several years has broken all the records and he's become our premiership-winning trainer".

Darren Weir has been charged by Racing Victoria.

Police say the allegations include obtaining financial advantage by deception, engaging in conduct that corrupts a betting outcome and use of corrupt conduct information for betting purposes, as well as animal cruelty.

A five-time Melbourne premiership victor, Weir runs the biggest stable in the country with more than 600 horses on the books and dozens of staff at both locations.

The bombshell claims have thrown into the spotlight Payne's famous Melbourne Cup win in 2015, when she rode Weir-trained gelding Prince of Penzance to victory at $101.
