    I for one can fully understand why we are the youth suicide capital of the developed world. How long does it take to realize that some people are better than others? ie The All-Stars.

    Hey Gom. Just looking at comments that have been made and not necessarily by you. I'm not making a case for either side. I re-read the published appeal decision last night. There were a number of admissions made by DS. In your last sentence, you say 'bet he never envisaged it would be him having to get rid of all his dogs." The disqualification rules are quite clear in that regard. You cannot own, race, train, or breed a registered grey for the duration of your disqualification. That rule has stood for some time now. As a license holder, you are prohibited from associating with a disqualified person. However, the dogs were permitted to be transferred to a family member which meant any income earned from those dogs post DQ went back to that relationship. The RIU has no powers to force anyone from a property, only the police can do that. There had to be some type of agreement between the current property owner and those who issue the new training license in order for the dogs to be trained from that property. The property owner had the right to tenant the property as he/she wished, he or she would have to agree to any proposal put forward, and I assume that is what happened. As no licensed trainer resided at the property prior to the DQ taking effect, a new trainer would have to be found. For the property to be re-licensed restrictions may have been imposed and agreed to. Remember, the dogs could have gone to other properties to be trained by one or more new trainers. All details should have been sorted during the extension period to ensure a smooth transition. That appears not to have happened. The trainer engaged has now departed. GOM to my knowledge, a person who has been warned off cannot live on a property that is registered for the purposes of training or breeding registered greyhounds. As always I base my opinion and it is just my opinion, on the rules that currently exist and the published JCA transcript. I may or may not renew my license come July, currently in two minds. If I do, I will sign the declaration accepting the T's and C's. If I do, I will be locked into abiding by the rules as set out. Had we not signed away all of our rights, maybe we would have some power to correct any possible injustices that may exist. But that's a whole new thread.

    Can I ask why you presume an AW track will not be turf ? In my experience any polymer or wax based track world wide seems to attract a different type of horse with a different action, and we haven’t bred that type of horse in NZ, so you invariably find horses that prefer AW tracks in countries that are turf driven, for example the UK and NZ, are of a lesser standard. Conversely the turf style AW track, Strathayr, as seen in Hong Kong, Mooney Valley and Singapore tends to suit horses bred for turf tracks, typicallly those with British, Irish or Australian heritage. Whilst I accept that a polymer track would be better than nothing I also think it’d be madness to create tracks that suit second rate horses, that’ll just further diminish our international reputation and favour bad horses and the production of a bad product. Coukd you revert and help me understand what the fraternity think of my intelligent observations. Thanks.

    I see Brodie and a few former posters trying to make a mountain out of a molehill and insinuate the All Stars story although closed is still a conspiracy theory and they are telling lies... some people are unbelievable..awful people.

    Get that humble pie warmed up ......

    Hopefully, but now you’ve got to appease the Greens and they’re the problem for racing As for the pokies under Helen’s regime, I think you’ll find what she said / did was decide to cut out the arguably corrupt middle men / trusts like our friend Murray Acklin operates, and grant the NZRB class 4 gaming licenses so that instead of Acklin and Co running pokie machines in TAB retail outlets ( and making grants to clubs as they saw fit ) the money went directly to the “clearing house” we know as the NZRB.

    GOM, I agree to a point. The source of the contaminant was not established, but the parties involved could have cleared their names by providing the requested sample. A simple step that could have altered the decision handed down. I agree that it was known to all that the licensee was an absentee trainer, by choice I might add. Should that arrangement have been allowed? There is a precedent that suggests yes, although the trainer in that instant had to return to the country and property every month while out of country. Also, that trainer did set the training plan for the dogs in care. In this case, Dennis admitted that he did not train the dogs. An admission that counted heavily against him. Were the betting public aware of this fact? Most of the issues that arise seem in my opinion to stem from the powers of discretion. We do not have all the facts, there may have been other circumstances that led to what may look like harsh decisions. Only the players involved have that knowledge. Discretion is applied to many of the rules we all must abide by. I have said before, I do have a little sympathy, the decisions that Dennis made played a major role in the penalty handed down. I do not, however, agree with some on the age issue. A younger licensee should not be treated differently in identical circumstances.

    Taupo should be used more. Trials there yesterday. 23 Heats. 138 starters. The track could take more racing.

    Bit unnecessary to stoop to name calling. Also lots of all weather tracks don’t have up and in biases. Neither HK nor Singapore significantly favour inside draws or leaders which are two I have watched hundreds of races on over many years.

    Nothing is going to change...the one thing I bet the riu informant you spoke to will also tell you that they know dennis did not give the dogs p or take it himself to contaminate the said dog....the only thing he in my opinion is guilty of is backing his son and the hanger ons for so long......what happened to the 4 horses that gave positives to p at taranaki.....oh it was someone else not the trainers......sorry guys double standards ....punish I agree...destroy a innocent man for stupidity I don't agree....just my opinion

    Regardless of everything else that is going on - have to really commend Nyomi. Absolute professional and so good with the dogs. A star in the sport in my eyes - huge respect for her.

    Can't be better than this

    Did you add the bit that Michael has a share and that George Sorros also bought into the horse. And in this country, what did our esteemed leaders do about promoting this?.....nhetts, naghda, zip butt nothing....a disgrace.

    Knew that was going to happen? What's the problem mini, Miss O'Regan is proven as a trainer and a very nice person to boot. You seem to be very quick to condemn in any instance. I always wonder about people that take pleasure out of other peoples pain.

    Em, If David had of consented to the test (which he legally had the right to refuse) and it had proved to be clear it would have not helped his case one iota as the contaminated sample was months before. I could think of a number of reasons why someone would refuse a test. For example if they had been smoking cannabis which is almost considered a misdemeanor now the person may think that would indicate they were at least a drug user where in fact any other drug would in law have been irrelevent. I think David's partner questioned this point as she was legally entitled to and it was used against both her and David and subsequently Dennis. The absent trainer thing is a ruse. The arrangement had existed for years with no one worrying about it. You qoute the person that had to return to NZ once a month, well Dennis and Pam were at the property twice at least most weeks. Dennis also trained the dogs in as much as he set out the program for each dog and because he was always present when they raced he was in the best position to alter or adjust that training. How many other trainers do this planning with workers actually carrying out the work. Also hands up anyone who has been aware of non present training arrangements in NZ either in ther past or right now. I can name several and I'll bet there are others I have never heard of. I will repeat that when the penalty was handed down to Dennis the ramificatrions that have resulted would never have been imagined and the people that assigned the ppenalty would not have wished the hardship that has ensured. There are a whole of assumed powers that have been used that I am not sure were even legal. This is the part of this incident that worries me, what level of infringement now ensures you will be hunted down? Dennis pleaded guilty straight away and expected a penalty butI'll bet he never envisaged it would be him having to get rid of all his dogs, have his family vilified and son expelled from the family home with a few hours notice

    gee whiz gom i think he should have got another 2 years for being so stupid as to let his son a known drug cheat and unlicenced look after the dogs a disaster waiting to happen and if certain people you david was doing this then they should have reported it he might not have got the 2 years.. is there truth in the report dennis was even living on the property if thats the case why are people whingeing he got kicked out he wasnt even living there In the summary of facts from the JCA decision, it was revealed Denis Schofield lived 100 kilometres away from his training establishment in the Waikato region. David Schofield, his partner and her son live at the training establishment, while Denis lives in Auckland. David Schofield was said to manage the training establishmen
