Leak report ‘devastated’ ex-racing chair

The Leak?

Former Racing Victoria chairman David Moodie has been devastated by the racing integrity commissioner’s report into a cobalt investigation leak, a court has heard.

Commissioner Sal Perna determined Moodie was not the original source of a leak about positive cobalt results for two trainers but found he compromised the investigation by disclosing the information.

Moodie’s barrister Simon Whelan QC on Monday said the racehorse owner and breeder had been devastated by the report by Perna, who had gone on “an absolute frolic” and exceeded his powers.
