Gold Coast Bookie 1-Month Ban & Fines After Threats

Thursday, 7th July 2011

Racing Queensland stewards suspended bookmaker Noel Smith for 1-month & fined him $1,000 for “improper conduct” after threatening Gold Coast Turf Club operations manager James Leskovar at a meeting on May 5. Stewards emphasised Smith’s “poor record over the past 12 months as well as his disciplinary history in 30 years as a bookmaker”. In addition, stewards noted this latest punishment also breached conditions imposed in a penalty Smith received in January & duly invoked an additional $2,000 suspended fine.
