Liam Birchley and Tony Vasil can continue training in Victoria while they appeal their disqualifications over the Aquanita race day treatments case.

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal on Friday granted stays of Birchley's one-year disqualification and Vasil's three-year ban pending the outcome of their appeals.

It will be up to the Queensland racing authorities whether Birchley can train in his home state.

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission had enforced the one-year ban imposed by Victoria's Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board.

Racing Victoria opposed the stay applications.

Birchley and Vasil were among eight people disqualified over the Aquanita race day treatment scandal.
