Former Fremantle, Greater Western Sydney and Carlton and NAB rising star AFL player Rhys Palmer is facing a life ban from race tracks after throwing two shoes at horses during the running of race six at Gloucester Park on Friday night.
The winning driver Dylan Egerton-Green told The West Australian newspaper that he was stunned by the incident.
“It was shock to see the first shoe coming,” Egerton-Green said.
“The second one went between the legs of my drive.
“It was miraculous that no horses faltered. Most of them are inexperienced pacers.”
