RV and MRC release statement on public comments

Racing Victoria (RV) and the Melbourne Racing Club (MRC) have made a joint media statement in regards to the comments made by Brodie Arnhold regarding chief steward Terry Baily at a charity event this week.

Racing Victoria (RV) and the Melbourne Racing Club (MRC) met today to discuss comments made publicly this week by RV Chairman of Stewards, Terry Bailey and MRC Chief Executive, Brodie Arnhold.

Mr Bailey and Mr Arnhold expressed regret for their comments and reinforced the need for RV and all Clubs to work together to ensure a viable and successful industry.

RV Chief Executive, Bernard Saundry, said, “Today was a fruitful discussion and the parties have agreed that the comments, whether made at a private function or to the media, were inappropriate.

“The matter has been resolved and all parties will move forward with the clear intention of working diligently together on the administration of the sport and ensuring they instil confidence in the interests of Victorian racing.

“Racing Victoria is of the firm view that the Melbourne Racing Club understands and values the importance of maintaining the highest integrity standards in Victorian racing for the benefit of all stakeholders.”

MRC Chairman, Mike Symons, offered the MRC’s unqualified support of RV’s integrity department.

“The Melbourne Racing Club’s commitment to integrity in racing could not be stronger,” Mr Symons said.

“The club has always been at the forefront of enhancements to integrity measures in the Victorian racing industry and we unconditionally support the work of RV’s integrity team led by Dayle Brown and Terry Bailey.

“Integrity is the foundation of the racing industry and without it we do not have a viable product which our customers will continue to enjoy and wager on with confidence.”
