JOCKEY Robbie Dunne called Bryony Frost ‘f***ing sl*t’ at Stratford racecourse last July, a witness said.
This is the first time someone has supported Frost in the 14 months since she first accused Dunne of bullying her.
The new evidence came on the first day of Dunne’s disciplinary hearing at Britain’s Equestrian Authority on Tuesday.
Dunne faces charges of verbal abuse and intimidation of a jockey – and if convicted, he faces up to three years’ ban.
The witness, who worked at Stratford as a racecourse attendant, will give evidence at a hearing on Wednesday.
In his opening statement, BHA attorney Louis Weston said: “There is no defense or justification for abusing someone in that way.”
Dunne, who denies the charges, and his legal team will give their story Wednesday morning, while Frost, 26, will also be at the hearing in London.
Dunne has admitted to one count of violent or improper conduct against Frost at Southwell racetrack on September 3 last year.
