3 buzzers found in his home = 4 year ban :shock:

Not that I'm complaining, but Australia definitely doesn't mess around when it comes to investigations and bans. I'm kind of surprised that they were able to raid his home. Stables seems like one thing, but I don't think I've ever heard of a racing jurisdiction obtaining a warrant for a residence. But I will admit I haven't done a ton of research on raids/bans.

Also, he had around 600 horses in his care before the raids. That seems... bananas.
