The Australian Trainers’ Association has asked Racing Victoria stewards to extend a deadline for members to provide keys to their stables.

The ATA claimed 65 percent of trainers opposed the move claiming it created a poor perception of them.

RV stewards wrote to trainers last Friday informing them they had a week to provide keys to their stables to allow easy access for raceday inspections.

The issue exploded on Tuesday when Peter Moody publicly quit the ATA, claiming the organisation were “puppets of RVL”.

Moody told Melbourne radio the initiative made him feel like “a criminal” and questioned whether the situation could lead to an abuse of power.

However, RV chief executive Bernard Saundry backed the integrity department in a statement released on Thursday.

“I won’t cop any suggestions that stewards might seek to do wrong once the keys are in their possession,” Saundry said.

“The people within our integrity department are professionals. They operate without favour and are absolutely committed to the success of the sport through a robust integrity program.

“Anyone questioning their integrity, without any basis, is out of line.”

The RV statement indicated that Friday remained the deadline for trainers to supply keys to their stables.

The ATA also alleged RV’s integrity department had not consulted the organisation about the move but chief steward Terry Bailey refuted that argument.

Bailey said stewards consulted the ATA last year before a group of around 15 to 20 trainers handed over electronic cards and codes allowing entry to their stables.

“Because there’s a blue, now there’s a lack of consultation,” Bailey told Melbourne radio station RSN.

Bailey also ruled out stewards conducting inspections without a staff member onsite.

RV executives will attend the ATA’s next Victorian committee meeting on Tuesday.
