Sheryl Wigg free to train and drive

Trainer-driver Sheryl Wigg has had her licences re-instated, after being disqualified earlier this year.

In February Wigg was disqualified for one year and seven months after admitting charges of administering a substance to three horses before they were due to race at Alexandra Park.

The disqualification came into effect on February 17 2022 and was to conclude on September 17 2023.

She has since lodged an appeal with the High Court. The High Court has indicated it will hear the matter in August. Until that hearing she has been granted a stay of penalty and her Licence to Train and Advanced Amateur Driver’s Licence have been reinstated.
