Victoria Police has been asked to investigate abusive phone calls made to the mobile phone of Racing Victoria’s chairman of stewards, Terry Bailey.

Bailey, whose home was fired at last October — a matter that continues to be investigated by the police, would not expand on the matter while officiating at Caulfield today.

Racing Victoria has referred the matter to the police and is providing assistance as required.

It has been alleged that a jockey was a party to the calls. Stewards will not be conducting their own inquiry in tandem.
