    Jackal, who cares... move on. This isn't Bridget Saunders' socialite gossip column.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Of course not. There was talk last year that one of the runners was believed to have been treated on race day and that the instructions to do so were intercepted by phone monitoring. But I don't think the horse threw up any positive results.

    NZ Derby 2018 - pre race. Anything in this P4P or are you sweeping this under the rug?

    If u had to choose

    Neither, I'd rather see an extra junior driver's penalty-free race at every meeting. Get these kids out there as much as we can. That's not sayin the others don't have upside. BUt if we don't incentivise these juniors they will be off driving driving trucks or diggers soon enough and lost to the game.

    Have you not noticed how he has been having major issues mid-race for well over a year now? His recent commentary of the Wingatui gallops was horrible and the club was inundated with complaints. That being said, I agree that when he's happy and healthy, he's an excellent harness caller.

    I actually think you have a major psychological problem.

    HRNZ have commissioned an independent report in to this treatment. Hopefully the report's investigators will explore why the process is banned Europe. As noted, a fundamental of journalism is to present both sides of the fence and differing opinions. Not the case here - merely a interview with the All Stars' current and previous vet and the companies' owner, who is an All Stars owner. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the treatment, I am no scientist, but the tv pieces were cunningly one-sided. Was GOC ever going to put anything on the show that drew criticism towards the All Stars? no, no he was not.

    What knockers? All I ever read and hear is people who love the horse.

    Strong words for someone too chicken to put their name to it.

    There are two chances of GOC doing anything to upset the All Stars stable - zero and none. It will be interesting viewing but do not expect it to be anything sensational or an 'expose'.
