Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie has been found guilty of a further 12 charges, this time, of race day administration and has been asked to make submissions on sentence.

Currie had already been disqualified for four years after being found guilty of two charges involving texts which were alleged to indicate jigger use, two weeks ago.

His lawyers have filed an application for an internal review into those charges.

He had been waiting for the result of a reconvened Inquiry from early March at which he faced 14 alleged breaches and two charges made in the alternative were not continued.

The results had been delayed by the illness of a steward who sat on the panel.

In a media release on Monday, the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission said Currie had been found guilty of five breaches of AR 178E (race day treatment without permission).

It said Currie as the trainer was guilty of causing the administration of a medication to five horses on March 24, 2018, the same day they raced at Doomben and Gatton.

He has also been found guilty of a further seven charges under the same rule for causing the administration of a medication to seven horses on April 7, 2018, the same day they were engaged to race at Toowoomba.

Stewards have asked Currie for submissions on his sentence on those charges.

Currie is expected to seek a further internal review of those 12 guilty findings.

He is expected to face a further inquiry into 14 remaining charges from March 2018 and a further five positive swab charges within coming weeks.

Currie failed in another part of his long running case last week when a Supreme Court judge denied his application to stop Racing Queensland refusing his nominations.

After that ruling he withdrew a stay application for the two convictions from a fortnight ago.
