So disappointing to hear she has had her license suspended. We all know and love her as a twitter crusader & champion of the trainers when it comes to rights. Reported by Bruce Clark as having nothing to do with her tweets so why have the stewards come down so hard??!!

No report, no fair trial and no appeal process whatsoever. What in the world happened??

I would imagine her 'actions' has ticked somebody off.....You don't get that treatment unless you've done something of a nasty nature or there is an allegation that she has allegedly done something wrong against an individual. Hmm, let me guess....

My favorite horse is the last winner I backed !!

I know the background of all of this and have spoken to Kate a lot in the last couple of days. Let's just say the Kilmore Racing Club has a lot of internal problems. I reckon it would be fair to say the club has lost 50 per cent of its horses in the last 18 months.

Kate is no angel, but she's not afraid to stand up for herself and be a pioneer in the industry. She should be encouraged, not gagged. I wish I could say more, but Kate has asked me to stay quiet for the time being, which is fair, as I imagine solicitors will be involved.

Thanks for that Melbourne Racing.

I was very puzzled to read that she wasn't even given the chance to refute any allegations. That's very disappointing for her as I agree she has done nothing but good for the industry.

Hopefully she can keep her chin up and work through whatever is wrong!

I have a couple of shares in horses with her and from my point of view it is an absolute disgrace that they have suspended her, one of the nicest and hard working small trainers going around.

Obviously no one is allowed to have an opinion on things these days, if they listened to her they probably would not have had a meeting abandoned on Sunday!!

It's amazing that racing - and sports in general - feel they can deny their participants free speech. If the track is s**t, and they often are, why can't the people whose livelihood depends on it voice their opinions? D O'Brien fined 10k for saying that Flemington wasn't up to scratch. Ricky Stewart fined - what was it? 65k or 75k overall? for saying the refs are poor. Newsflash - refs are shocking and Flemington raced like a goat track. Why are sports administrators doing their best to quash any criticism, rather than taking it on board and doing something constructive with it. 

If Kilmore track administration or track staff are to blame, they should be losing their livelihood, not Kate!

I think you will find Kate has not been suspended by the RVL stewards and it is a matter involving the club at Kilmore.
Her suspension only relates to her using the track for training,she is free to race wherever and whenever she likes.
I also know the background circumstances to this matter and wish Kate well in seeking a resolution.
Kate is a fine person in racing and widely respected throughout the training ranks.

Half the problem outspoken trainers have is their "mates" do not stick with them.

I have no idea what Kate Goodrich has done but it sound like its a political issue.

The trainers Union should be jumping on board and sorting it out.

Black ban those officials who do not tow the line.

Looks like a new thread "RV Integrity Failures" is long overdue. Bailey's failure to follow rules regarding notification of test results probably won't be addressed until after the cases have been finalised but his explanation should make interesting reading. Don't see how Integrity officials can enforce the rules on licensed people while ignoring them themselves.

Bloody good on you Kate, too many salarymen hiding behind each other with no transparency or accountability. It's still a democracy over there in Oz isn't it? .......for Gods sake RVL are becoming a Starzi.

Trainers associations do SFA, especially for smaller guys and gals, you'd hope they don't draw much of a wage in the process

Know Kate pretty good, and she just about gets it right in this matter imo.

But will almost certainly be hung out to dry, good and proper.  Dead

A piece of 4x2 has more nous so it's a bit unfair but anytime you want to put your reputation as a diviner of identity on the line I'll be more than happy to accommodate you. 

$100 to charity for every time you've got it wrong sound good to you?

If either of you want to take this further, please continue OFF forum, emails ideally as PMs still qualify as 'forum'.
Identities are to remain publicly unknown, regardless or who you know or think you know Ermm

How do PM's constitute a forum ? No-one can see it.

Unsavoury PMs can still be reported max & suspensions/bans have occurred due to content of same, so it's probably 'safer' to go elsewhere Wink
