Controversial jockey Danny Nikolic claims he has been targeted by corrupt Racing Victoria officials.

Nikolic has told a court RV’s integrity services head Dayle Brown and chief steward Terry Bailey are corrupt.

Nikolic says he has been treated very differently from other riders, including by Racing Victoria investigator Tim Robinson.

“I believe there’s been a very well thought out position, Dayle Brown and Terry Bailey in particular,” Nikolic told his appeal to regain his jockey licence.

“I think I’ve been under the magnifying glass so to speak to the last four to five years.

“Because I’ve had words with Terry Bailey, I just find that in my opinion I get treated very differently to anybody else by those three in particular.”

Nikolic said he did not know if Robinson, a former policeman, was corrupt.

“But I think he’s got an opinion about me and he’s gone out of his way to make life very difficult for me,” Nikolic told the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Nikolic said he would relocate to Queensland if he succeeded in regaining his jockey licence.

“I’m not going to fall into playing mind games or whatever else they want to play with me,” he said on Tuesday.

“By relocating I won’t have to put myself in the firing line of Terry Bailey and his henchmen so to speak.”

The Caulfield Cup-winning jockey has admitted lying and behaving disgracefully and violently but says he is a changed man.

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 has told VCAT he has done his time for past wrongful acts, which include assaulting a fellow jockey, the rider’s girlfriend, a taxi driver and a policeman.
