Darren Weir disqualified for four years
High-profile horse trainer Darren Weir has been banned for four years.
The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board handed down the penalty on Wednesday.
He opted not to fight any of the charges, which included the possession of three banned ‘jiggers’ used to shock horses into running faster.
Police raided his stables last week, reportedly finding a firearm and small amounts of cocaine at his property.
