Victorian Racing Tribunal Will Hear Ben Melham Case on May 19

VICTORIA, Australia – The Victorian Racing Tribunal will conduct directions hearing in regards to the betting accusations against high-performing rider Ben Melham and his partner. The court will hold the proceeding on May 19 through telephone, according to the news by Australian horse betting tips and news website JustHorseRacing.com.au.

Late on Monday, Racing Victoria Stewards issued seven charges against Melham. One of these allegations is for giving misleading or fallacious proof. Meanwhile, six of the charges relate to the high-profile horseman’s alleged wagering activity that took place between March and September 2019. Melham purportedly wagered on horse races in which he did not compete. Plus, he got charged for supporting his mounts. Melham did not get accused of wagering against his rides, based on the report by Australian horse racing news and information portal Racenet.

Besides the jockey, his partner Karlie Dales is also a part of the case. The registered racehorse owner is facing charges for allegedly providing Racing Victoria Stewards with false or deceptive evidence in one interview. Earlier this week, Jamie Stier had confirmed that Melham would not get stood down or withdrawn from his position amid the betting-related accusations he is presently facing. The integrity head of Racing Victoria cited that the Racing Victoria Stewards had assessed the purported proof versus Melham. Stier relayed that the team had performed this measure before deciding that they felt comfortable with the outstanding rider carrying on participating in competitions.

Stier remarked that the stewards from Racing Victoria had thought it suitable for Melham to carry on racing at this point. Since the probe began, they had monitored the top jockey’s conduct closely, he added. Furthermore, Stier pointed out that he had anticipated the case of Melham to take place on time despite the coronavirus restrictions. The Victorian Racing Tribunal could hear the horseman’s case through telephone hook-up or video when the time arrives, he said.
