Licence blow for Waterhouse.

AUSTRALIAN bookmaker Robbie Waterhouse faces the possibility ofbeing warned off for a second time if he continues to pursue an applicationto return to the ranks.

The New South Wales Thoroughbred Racing Board rejected his applicationlast week.

Waterhouse was disqualified for his role in the Fine Cotton scandal atEagle Farm in August 1984, but his ban was lifted last September. Theconditions of that decision were that he could not own a racehorse, andhe could not become a licensed person under the Australian Rules of Racing.

In a letter to Waterhouse, TRB chief executive Jim Murphy wrote: "Ifyou seek to pursue your present application and do not withdraw it in14 days, the board may need to review its decision of 18 September."

Waterhouse, husband of leading Australian trainer Gai Waterhouse, refusedto comment on the possibility of Supreme Court action in a bid to geta bookmakers' licence.
