Greyhound trainers banned for life after livebait scandal

FIVE greyhound trainers have been banned for life in the wake of the live baiting scandal that has engulfed the sport.

Tom Noble, Tony McCabe, Debra Arnold, Reg Kay and James Harding were all banned by the Racing Queensland board on Monday night, preventing them from owning, training or preparing a registered racing animal or attending Brisbane greyhound racecourses.

The group were among seven trainers Racing Queensland issued with show cause notices after the Four Corners expose on live baiting.

Kay, McCabe and Harding did not respond to the notices, while the evidence provided by Noble and Arnold was deemed to be unsuitable to avoid a life ban.

The fate of two trainers, Greg Stella and Michael Chapman, has yet to be decided, with the Racing Queensland board deeming them in need of further consideration.
