More Drama For Jason Thompson

In a dramatic twist that is starting to read more like a soap opera, than that of the life of ’s leading greyhound trainer; has now become embroiled in another altercation at Park; the scene of last years Melbourne Cup fiasco.

It is alleged that Thompson and became involved in a physical altercation during the evening kenelling prior to the races. This time however, it seems Thompson has come off the worse for wear.

GRV officiating at the meeting, were compelled to open an in to the incident, which occurred in the vicinity of the kennel block area.

GRV Stewards last night only named Brian Selleck and “four other” licensed persons as being able to provide evidence to the inquiry, Australian Racing Greyhond has learned that Jason Thompson is alleged to have been involved in the physical altercation with Selleck.

If true, this would be the second physical altercation at a greyhound race track involving Thompson in recent times, after he was instrumental in last years fiasco and was alleged to have become involved in a physical altercation with .

And frankly, GRV Stewards only have themselves to blame after they failed to send the right signal to all greyhound participants when they only handed Thompson a “light” $1,000 penalty for his involvement and conduct on that night.

At that time Australian Racing Greyhound felt obliged to ask the question with regard to the light penalty :

What sort of signal does this send to anyone else who can afford a poultry $1,000 fine about how they need to conduct themsleves or who they can abuse or assault?

Given a second physical altercation has now allegedly just occured within a few months of the first, and involves one of the same people from the first incident; GRV Stewards will need to take a good hard look at themselves, their processes, and how they hand out their sentencing and to who.

It’s starting to look highly likely to that greyhound race tracks no longer appear like safe places to work, relax or enjoy your hobby.

Officially GRV Stewards have adjourned the inquiry to a date to be fixed, but this is likely to be Thompson’s third time fronting a GRV in as many months.

Sooner or later the penny will drop.

as i have said before jason thompson is a god to the stewards. watch again as nothing is done to him. i will give odds of 100/1 that he gets nothing out of this. victorian grv stewards are spineless. one rule for everyone, 1 rule for jason. there are plenty more participants out there that are sick of thompson and his crap. wake up grv stewarts you are all looking like bigger idiots day after day. maybe they are too busy with important issues, maybe someone answering their phone in the kennels or incorrect rug inside kennel area, or a… Read more »

the stewards will hate this one, if they give Brian more than a fine, everyone will see once and for all that the stewards are gutless when it comes to disciplining Thompson, as it was good enough for him to just get a fine for assaulting someone. On another occassion Thompson abused stewards at geelong one night and threw his licence at them nothing was done on that occassion either. the stewards probably picked up the licence and said sorry jason.There needs to be a royal commission into the crap that goes on with grv stewards and the control board… Read more »
