Let me assure you - others have lost their license to syndicate for far, far less!


Surely that’s a conflict of interest if I’ve ever seen one.WTF!!!!

RVL like schools boys in play ground getting told off by teachers? Kicking the dirt with there shoes wondering how do we hide what we have done!! It feels like? If you are bring owners into racing? RVL look the other way if you are ripping innocent people? Just keep the horses coming in and going around in circles!! These poor everyday people want to get in? But have to find away to get lessons to swim through the sharks

RVL have fallen asleep at the wheel when it comes to penalties for some in the game. Unless it's smacking them in the face ? That obvious? Like the Aquanita cheating? They do not touch the top of ladder! Another Ollie? What happened there? Getting caught doing what he did? Was a lifetime offence!! I'm only getting started

No ! They worry about press and what it might do to there industry. If they got rid of crooks ? People would have more faith!! How can a jockey back another horse while ridding second favourite and get 9 months suspension? How can a leading jockey cripple another jockey? Then six months later police report he was given money to interfere with another runner? No penalty!! Work that out?? Someone ! Should not have a license to ride

What about the Sydney , top notch, jockey who had the rumble with a taxi driver ??     Its supposed to hit the headlines sooner rather than later.  
If it had been a footy player it would be all over the front pages now .    But a jock and it just creeps under the radar. 
animals before people.

Having a fight with a taxi driver! Wouldn't even meet an inquiry withRVL when you having a leading jockey admitting to police to taking money to interfere with another jockey 6/10 months after he caused a leading mel rider to become paraplegic! RVL sitting on hands. Papers printed it they do nothing. No wonder bailey left the state his hands completely tied

Red Hare. Google Zaria, police , bribe, racing, the age printed story of receiving $5000 to interfere with rival runner. Police have evidence. I think was ridding for Darley at that time? Was immediately sacked. Google jockey Brereton race fall 2010 . Approx 10 months berfore. Brereton is now paraplegic after Zarhra caused him to fall. I think workcover just finished seeing zarha for damages.

Say for arguments sake it's true. Accountants have many clients but If one is the racing minister does that preclude them from race horse ownership?

It's the racing industry. Everybody is connected somehow. Has been the case since forever.

Buy backs are common practise at the sales.  In a racing industry sense its no big deal.  Not disclosing in the PDS was the problem.  I'd think this would breach their AFS licence.  Has any action been taken on that side?

It's just another major headache for RVL ? To sort out probably one of the most corrupted systems in the country!! We talk about used car sales and real Eastgate agents? The auction ring in Australia will eat you alive. I have had a lot of experience in throngs on
