– Caulfield Cup-wining jockey Danny Nikolic has been fined $1500 for assaulting a fellow rider and a police officer, with a magistrate rejecting his claims of self-defence.
Magistrate Anglea Bolger questioned the reliability of Nikolic’s evidence and found he punched the jockey and assaulted the detective as they stood toe-to-toe.
Nikolic, 38, was convicted and fined $1200 for recklessly causing injury to jockey Mark Pegus in January 2011.
He was also convicted of unlawfully assaulting Detective Senior Constable Julio Salerno after a police interview and fined $300.
“It’s about what I expected,” the former top jockey said as he left the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Thursday.
Nikolic is serving a two-year ban from racing for threatening Victoria’s chief racing steward, but can return to trackwork from this week.
He must reapply for a licence to once again ride in competitive races, and it’s unclear how these convictions will affect that process.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.

    You’re fucking joking me. $300 bucks for assaulting a copper? So dumbass Bolger finds he’s bullshitting, in addition to being found guilty, and he gets a $1500 fine all up? Holy mother of God. This is a bloke who’s threatened to kill the Victorian chief racing steward, allegedly rigged races, allegedly punched a woman, punched a fellow jockey and goes head-to-head with a respected detective. A good friend of mine, when at the age of 17, played “fisticuffs” while pissed on a Friday night. He entered a guilty plea and left with a 2-year suspended jail term. The system is well and truly fucked.
