Terry Bailey Terry Bailey takes jockey Nikolic's threat very seriously

Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey still takes jockey Danny Nikolic’s threat against his family very seriously, a court has heard.

Nikolic was outed for two years for threatening Bailey at a September 2012 race meeting before copping a further penalty for offensive conduct towards another steward.

Nikolic had neither apologised for the Seymour incident nor withdrawn the threat, Bailey told the rider’s appeal to regain his jockey licence.

“In circumstances where Mr Nikolic has neither expressed any remorse over the incident at Seymour nor withdrawn the threat to my family, I still take the threat he made to me very seriously,” he said in a statement.

It showed Nikolic retained the same lack of respect for stewards that he had shown over much of his career as a jockey, he said.

Under questioning by Nikolic’s barrister Julian Burnside QC, Bailey said he was not resentful about the jockey’s lack of remorse but an apology would be nice.

Nikolic has denied telling Bailey “we all have families and I know where yours lives”, saying the steward was lying.

Nikolic told the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal he never threatened Bailey.

He said Bailey threatened to destroy his career and was corrupt and dishonest.

Bailey on Friday said he had never told Nikolic he was going to ruin his career.

“It’s all a big fat lie,” he said.
