Apology For Buckley

One of Australia's biggest racehorse owners Sean Buckley, head of Ultra Tune Australia has this morning received an apology from the Herald Sun for articles that appeared in the paper relating to his alleged dealings with a criminal and underworld identity.

In an apology published today, the Herald Sun says the articles that were published in late 2007 and August 2008 were done so under the previous Editor-In-Chief and the newspaper now accepts they contained factual errors unable to be independently verified at the time.

Buckley owns several leading racehorses including champion sprinter Miss Andretti, winner of the prestigious Group 1 King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2008. He has also enjoyed considerable success with Dane Julia, Wealth Princess, Perfect Promise, Culminate and Noble Heir who is set to race in Dubai next year.


When contacted by Racing and Sports, Mr Buckley confirmed the amicable settlement.

“I have maintained the articles were inaccurate right from the start. I can confirm an agreement has been reached with the Herald Sun and I have received an undisclosed settlement as a result.”

“Beyond that I am unable to comment further due to confidentiality agreements signed with the Herald Sun.”

“Needless to say I am happy this matter has now been settled. It has caused me and my family considerable angst but it is now behind us and I can now devote my full attention to my racing and business opportunities especially in the middle-east.”
