Horse racing officials on high alert following shooting

On the eve of Melbourne Cup, there are concerns a campaign of intimidation is being waged against horse racing officials. 

The racing industry is reeling after shots were fired at the home of integrity chief Terry Bailey on Sunday night, while he was relaxing with his wife and two daughters.  No one was injured in the attack and no arrests have been made. 

The Herald Sun has now revealed that a week earlier, a suspected bikie wearing a bandanna covering his face and gang colours rode past the home of Dayle Brown, a former police detective and current Racing Victoria head of integrity. 

Andrew Rule, associate editor of the Herald Sun, told Ross and John the bikie ‘took great interest in his property’. 

Mr Rule said outlaw motorcycle gangs may have links to ‘powders and potions’ within the horse racing industry, such as cobalt.
