Maher and Eustace replace Weir at Forest Lodge

2 years ago

Racing Victoria (RV) has released a statement regarding Darren Weir’s training complex at Forest Lodge.

RV Chief Executive Giles Thompson has revealed that the training partnership of Ciaron Maher and David Eustace, who operate out of Caulfield, will take over the Ballarat stables in the wake of Weir’s four-year disqualification from the sport.

The takeover is effective as of today, February 7.

The statement from Thompson read: “We trust this morning’s announcement by the Ballarat Turf Club and Ciaron Maher Racing will be welcomed by those staff affected by Darren Weir’s disqualification and provide them with greater certainty about their immediate working future after a challenging week.

“This is also a positive announcement for the Ballarat community, along with those local suppliers servicing the industry, that a major high-profile training combination in Ciaron Maher and David Eustace have moved swiftly to fill the void that has been left by Mr Weir.

“This also presents a viable option for those owners of Mr Weir’s who would like their horses to remain in their current training environment at Ballarat, where they can utilise the wonderful facilities of the Ballarat Turf Club.

“In granting approval of this application, the stewards have advised all parties that they will continue to closely monitor both the requirements of the transfer and the adherence of Mr Weir to the terms of his disqualification.”

A number of Weir’s horses had already been placed under the care of Maher and Eustace following raids on his Ballarat and Warrnambool stables last week.

It is understood that discussions regarding the Warrnambool complex remain ongoing.
