Taskforce Trentbridge is set to swoop on up to another six harness racing licensees in Tamworth this week after the arrest of trainer Anthony Mabbott on Monday. Mabbott has been stood down by Harness Racing NSW and will face four charges, two counts of facilitating conduct that corrupts the betting outcome of an event and two counts of use corrupt conduct information to bet on an event. ”We will be alleging that the 34-year-old was involved in at least two races,” Detective Inspector Wayne Walpole told The Northern Daily Leader. ”[We will allege] he with Robert Clement and other persons facilitated corrupt conduct of a betting event.” Fairfax Media has learnt police interviewed several drivers and trainers in the New England area last week and further charges could follow. Similar to the Prussian Secret case, which involved trainer Cody Morgan and former harness trainer Clement, it is believed the police have records of phone intercepts between the licensees.

Prussian Secret was stopped on the way to the Gunnedah Cup and Morgan and Clement charged under new laws with engaging in conduct that corrupts betting outcome of an event, and facilitating conduct that corrupts the betting outcome of an event. Harness Racing NSW chief integrity officer Reid Sanders indicated he was aware of the ongoing investigation and there was likely to be movement this week.

Meanwhile, trainer Rebecca Brown has been disqualified for six months after she knowingly allowed a disqualified person to participate within her registered training establishment. HRNSW stewards established that Brown’s fiance Mitchell Reese, who was disqualified, had driven, fed, watered and handled horses at Brown’s Jundera property.

A police spokesman said the man, aged in his 30s, was making trouble at Mt Victoria station about 1.55pm today.

He told police that he had left his backpack and a hand grenade on a train.

The spokesman said officers believe the man may have been affected by drugs or alcohol at the time.

After being subdued with capsicum spray by a police officer, the man was arrested and taken to Katoomba police station where he’s expected to be charged.

The train and station were evacuated, and searched by Blue Mountains Police Rescue and the Bomb Disposal Squad.

The Blue Mountains train line was partially closed between Lithgow and Katoomba in both directions for about two hours while the search was held.

Train operations re-commenced about 4.30pm.

A Transport Management Centre spokeswoman said there were lengthy delays on the train line following the incident and passengers were advised to delay their travel to the area or make alternative arrangements.
