Townsville Trainer Butts Back In Business
Following last October's kerfuffle over a controversial article written by Townsville trainer & long-time journalist Terry Butts & published in the North Queensland Register, Queensland Racing's licensing committee informed Butts that his trainer's licence had been cancelled after a "show cause" hearing. However after the Appeals Tribunal subsequently adjourned its hearing into the Butts case, QR has informed Butts his licence has been unconditionally restored & he is no longer "unlicensed". Butts confirmed yesterday he will "have runners next month".
