Champion jockey Danny Nikolic has once again felt the wrath of the Victorian Stewards commission after an angry outburst at head steward Terry Bailey on Oaks Day.

Nikolic has been charged with conduct ‘prejudicial to the image or interests of racing’ in that he conducted himself in a manner which was insulting and disrespectful towards members of the stewards panel and in doing so used offensive and disrespectful language.

Nikolic’s angry outburst was directed at chief steward Terry Bailey over an alleged modified jockeys’ vest found in his possession at Flemington over which he was charged and fined $1000.

In the past 12 months, Nikolic and Bailey have a had a number of heated exchanges and the saga appears to just be beginning.

Earlier this year Victorian stewards investigated a number of his rides dating back to October 2009 and looked into the betting activities of some of his associates. Nikolic was cleared of four serious charges by the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) board on June 29, but Bailey and Nikolic still cannot seem to agree.

The latest charge will be heard by the RAD board at a date yet to be fixed.
