Racing NSW chief steward Ray Murrihy will give Andrew Johns, Allan Robinson and Eddie Hayson

Racing NSW chief steward Ray Murrihy will give Andrew Johns, Allan Robinson and Eddie Hayson one more chance to appear at the More Joyous inquiry before deciding if Gai Waterhouse, Tom Waterhouse or John Singleton face any charges, reports Racing Network TVN news. 

Murrihy expressed his extreme disappointment in the trio for not fronting at the hearing, which spanned six hours at Racing NSW’s Druitt Street headquarters.

Johns and Robinson provided written statements while calls to Hayson’s legal representative were not returned.

No date has been set for the return of the inquiry.

Murrihy is keen to question Johns, Robinson and Hayson as to their involvement, which appears to be central to the entire investigation.

He also noted that he wants a swift conclusion to the matter and that stewards would now work through the evidence heard and consider if charges will follow.

"Racing New South Wales wishes to thank all those that attended today's inquiry, but we are disappointed with the three failings to co-operate," Murrihy said. 

"These three people are in a chain of information that is central to the issue. We will contact these three people one more time in order to afford them the opportunity to appear. Should the three people once again fail to appear, recommendations will be made to initiate proper sanctions.

"We will be giving consideration to the large volume of evidence at hand and whether charges will be laid, and we hope to bring this inquiry to a swift and satisfactory conclusion."

Gai Waterhouse told the inquiry that she was disgusted her reputation and the standing of her son Tom Waterhouse and bookmaking husband Rob Waterhouse was being brought in to question by

“One is a trumped up jockey, one is a brothel owner and the other is a rugby league player,” she said.

“They are the people that are trying to bring us down.

“It is an absolute disgrace and you John Singleton, you’re an absolute sham.”

The trio risk being warned off race courses by not appearing at the inquiry.
