, Furious trainer calls jockey ‘f***ing brain dead ****’ and says he could ‘kill that ****’ in leaked message

A FURIOUS trainer who branded a jockey a ‘f***ing brain dead ***’ in an explosive outburst has appealed against the fine handed to him by racing chiefs.

Livid Will Hulbert also said he could ‘f***ing kill that ****’ in the x-rated tirade.

Hulbert is appealing the fine he was hit with for his x-rated tirade that was leaked on social media

Hulbert hit the roof in a private voicemail recording to racehorse owners after jockey Andrew Mallyon rode Criminal Defence to fifth.

Mallyon was in the saddle in a race on the Sunshine Coast, Australia, on January 30.

Hulbert, who with his father Peter have more than 30 years’ experience between them, saw red after the horse failed to make the places.

In a message to owners that was subsequently leaked on social media, Hulbert said of Mallyon: “That f***ing brain dead *** will never f***ing sit on one of our horses ever again.”

The message ended with: “I’m f***ing ropeable. I could f***ing kill that ****.”

Stewards launched an investigation into the rant and fined Hulbert just over £550.

Their report read: “The specifics of the charge being that following Criminal Defence competing at the Sunshine Coast on 30 January 2021, Mr Hulbert misconducted himself by making an audio recording to the registered owners of the gelding regarding Mr Mallyon’s riding of Criminal Defence, which was inappropriate and offensive.

“When considering this matter, the stewards were mindful that this audio recording was made in private and was posted on a reputable website directed at the owners of Criminal Defence.

“And although Mr Hulbert was in no way responsible for the audio making its way onto a social media platform, for an experienced person in the racing industry he would be aware of his responsibilities to at all relevant times conduct himself in appropriate manner and in accordance with the Rules of Racing.”

But Hulbert insists he should never have been charged and that part of his rant was ‘just a figure of speech’.

He said: “The people who own this horse are close mates, obviously I don’t speak like that to other owners of my horses.

“Saying I wanted to kill him was just a figure of speech.”
