Jockey Danny Nikolic has revealed police and stewards are investigating at least four races in which he rode as part of their race-fixing probe.

Nikolic said owners, trainers and other jockeys had told him they had been questioned over the races, adding to the stress of his appeal against a two year disqualification for threatening chief steward Terry Bailey and being questioned over the murder of his ex-father-in-law Les Samba.

During evidence at his appeal hearing on Wednesday, Nikolic said stewards had questioned others about races at Kyneton and Bendigo.

It is already widely known that investigations are underway into a race won by the horse Smoking Aces at Cranbourne in February 2011 and another won by Bolton at Caulfield in February this year.

Nikolic said he had heard of jockeys being quizzed as to whether they had seen him and other jockeys go to the toilet in the jockeys’ room and whether they had seen money change hands.

“Trainers have been sent DVDs (of races) and asked to make statements,” he said.”

Nikolic said he had been questioned by police in relation to only one of the races.

Along with the Damien Oliver betting case which resulted in a 10-month ban for the champion jockey, the race-fixing investigation is one of a number of issues that have rocked Victorian racing in recent months.
