Jockey Bryony Frost branded a ‘f***ing sl*t’ by Robbie Dunne, BHA panel hears, as he admits acting in violent manner

JOCKEY Robbie Dunne called Bryony Frost a ‘f***ing sl*t’ at Stratford racecourse in July last year, a witness has said.

It is the first time that someone has come forward in support of Frost in the 14 months since she first alleged Dunne had bullied her.

Frost is finally due to speak on day two of the hearing in London

The new evidence came to light on day one of Dunne’s disciplinary hearing at British Horseracing Authority HQ on Tuesday.

Dunne faces charges of verbally abusing and threatening a fellow jockey – and if found guilty he faces a ban of up to three years.

The witness, who works at Stratford as a racecourse attendant, is due to give evidence at the hearing on Wednesday.

During his opening statement, BHA lawyer Louis Weston said: “There is no defence or justification for abusing someone in that way.”

Dunne, who denies the allegations, and his legal team will give their side of the story on Wednesday morning, while Frost, 26, will also be present at the hearing in London.

Dunne has admitted to one charge of acting in a violent or improper manner towards Frost at Southwell racecourse on September 3 last year.
