Australian horse trainer faces four-year ban over electric shock equipment

An Australian horse trainer has announced he will not fight charges made against him in connection to the use of electric shock equipment.

Darren Weir faces a ban of four years after police seized four of the illegal Taser-type devices at the Melbourne Cup winner's stables on 30 January.

At a hearing with Racing Victoria, Mr Weir, 48, said he would not contest three charges brought against him.

It is understood assistant trainer Jarrod McLean will contest some of the charges he faces.
