Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Damien Oliver has been charged over a bet he placed on a rival horse in a race in which he rode two years ago.

Racing Victoria (RV) confirmed early on Tuesday that Oliver admitted placing a $10,000 bet on the horse Miss Octopussy, the winner of a race at Moonee Valley in October 2010.

RV stewards Rob Montgomery and James Hitchcock formally laid the charges following a lengthy investigation.

Oliver, 40, is also charged with making a mobile phone call from the jockeys’ room at Moonee Valley prior to the race in question.

The rules of racing prohibit any jockey betting on any horse and from using a mobile phone in the jockeys’ room.

Oliver pleaded guilty to both charges.

A hearing of the charges will be held next Tuesday with Oliver facing a ban of at least 12 months which would place his career in jeopardy.
