Banned jockey Danny Nikolic is being investigated by police for allegedly stalking Racing Victoria staff after he was told to leave their Flemington headquarters on Monday.
Police have been told Nikolic allegedly followed two staff members in his car and pulled alongside them after they left work wearing a hooded jumper and sunglasses. He was seen at Racing Victoria on Monday and last Friday.
Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey confirmed that police had asked Nikolic to move on but would make no further comment.
A police spokesman said a man was spoken to in his car in Epsom Road about 1.30pm but no offences were detected.
On Thursday Nikolic was banned for two years by the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board, a decision he is reportedly appealing.
He cannot apply to have his licence returned nor set foot on a racecourse until October 1, 2015.
He was been warned off racetracks for threatening a steward during an appeal hearing against a previous ban.
Nikolic pleaded guilty to two charges of improper conduct towards steward Wade Hadley at the VCAT hearing into charges of threatening behaviour towards Mr Bailey late last year.
He was also hit with a $10,000 fine for saying "you're a disgrace" to Hadley as he left the witness box at a VCAT appeal hearing on November 8.
Last month, Nikolic was found guilty of assaulting another jockey and a police detective.
He punched jockey Mark Pegus several times during an argument in January 2011. Pegus suffered a cut lip and black eye.
Nikolic had said he acted in self defence.
He was also found guilty of assaulting Detective Julio Salerno during an interview at the St Kilda Police station three months later.
His father John Nikolic said Danny would not be available for comment.
"I'm sick and tired of you people driving Dan mad. All you want is sensationalised stories," he said.
