End To Moody Cobalt Investigation Nigh
Speaking on RSNs Racing Ahead program yesterday, Racing Victoria's chief steward Terry Bailey said that he expects the cobalt investigation into trainer Peter Moody to be finalised this week. "We're another step closer, I'd be very surprised if we don't have some developments this week," Bailey said. "The trial results we've been waiting on are through. Mr Moody, I understand is back in town this week so you can pretty much bank on some movement this week." He added: "Mr Moody gave us an explanation which may explain the elevated cobalt level and we've put that explanation to the test. Those trial test results came through on Friday which hopefully will put us in a position to move one way or another this week." Bailey said he is unsure when the cases against fellow Victorian trainers Danny O'Brien, Mark Kavanagh and Lee and Shannon Hope will be heard by the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board given the large volume of evidence that is still being processed.
