Two staff members from Chris Waller’s stable have been let go after the pair were involved in a physical altercation.
Waller addressed the media and racing officials confirming that two staff members were stood down, and have since ‘resigned’, following a physical altercation at the Gold Coast on 27th January.
“There has been speculation that there was a party that got out of hand on the Gold Coast involving stable staff on the evening of Wednesday, January 27,” Waller said.
“I can confirm that some of these staff were from my stable and have been stood down as a result of this incident which did include a physical altercation between two people who have resigned immediately.
“Due to the incident being outside of work hours, we have to be careful how the matter is handled and therefore a thorough investigation is continuing.”
