    richie got a reaction from Fartoomuch in JCA Committee to hear Exclusion Enquiry   
    Not jealous at all in fact have great admiration for both.In fact I have always been a fan of both.Just stating the fact that I don't believe people that are alleged by police to have defrauded the public should be allowed to continue to have the chance to defraud until they have been proven innocent.But I talking as a punter,and talking to other punters Cheats on seats always seems to come up in conversation.Hence 2 of them that usually only bet on trots during cup week wont be doing so this year.

    Innocent until proven guilty yes but should they be allowed to drive.If your bank manager took your funds would you still be happy for him to work until court case heard.
    If your kids teacher was up on charges of a sexual or violent nature,would you still be happy for him to teach your kids.
    I would think you would say no to both and yet you are happy foe alleged match fixers to carry on and ply their trade.
    Would never happen in any other industry

    Just a slight update to the comp.I was originally going to go with the Ashburton trot meeting on the Thursday,but seeing as on that night the greyhounds at Addington have their NZ Cup we will go there instead.I will post comp rules well before the comp gets underway.

    R1-8 Eastwood Chieftain.Got checked back to the rear early on last week,and that put paid too him.Previous runs were ok.Good chance here.
    R2-8 Zsa Zoe.Was game in defeat in behind a handy sort when sitting parked.Looks a big win chance here.
    R3-10 Scorcha.Nicely bred filly who is on debut.Has won her last 2 trials.Meets some other handy maidens here but is a strong chance here.
    R4-16 Held To Ransom.Got home really well from the back to grab 3rd.Meets a smiliar field and he can go real close too winning this.
    R5-4 Idle Moose.Solid win last week.Goes up in grade for this,but he is honest.Be thereabouts again.
    R6-8 Hayden's Meddle.Been so consistent lately and he was game when 2nd behind a handy type last week.Big chance here.
    R7-9 Monty Python.Just missed last time out.Consistent type who has been racing good fields.Not without a hope here.
    R8-7 Nimah Franco.Faces a step up after a powerful last week.Handy mare who can feature here.
    R9-14 Pro Surfer.Nice win on debut then got it all wrong in the score up last time out.If he behaves then he should be winning this.

    As I said before I used to post on here all the time,but felt like they weren't getting much attention so thought I'd try some where else.And I've also said that I have no preference over the 2 racing sites...I'm a racing fan and im supporting both sites...and I definitely won't be starting anything malicious.

    Good. Hope he goes out and kicks ass. Super horse who deserves as many chances as he can get. 
    Instead of dropping out six lengths last he just starts 6 lengths last.

    If what you describe is the reason it happened(ie "didn't advise the caretaker"),  then blaming suspensions misses the point that the "trainer" did a poor job making sure things were done correctly.

    I would imagine it is in terms and conditions of your licence application that if they suspect you are partaking in any criminal activity,i haven't been registered for a lot of years but always used to be a lot of stuff in the fineprint.I do know that part of the Ts&Cs mean that HRNZ can refuse or ban anybody from entering a racecourse and indeed registered trainers properties.

    Playing devils advocate here - if another horse or driver stuffs up the plan of two (or more) people to fix a race - does that make the conduct of the 2 (or more) people involved ok ?
    A couple of the races highlighted clearly raise questions - and not trying, or aiding another runner etc are definitely punishable offences - whether or not they come off.

    I think you have to take the $$ figures mentioned "with a grain of salt".
    On one charge the $1400 may be an exact figure, but the "over $1000" may be just a threshold for the exact charge laid ..... that is, a lesser penalty may be for a charge "under $1000" and greater penalty for a charge "over $1000" .....

And don't even worry about their livelihoods, the bastards with their Ring-Ins Cobalt, Milk shaking at the races,  Thank god no Kiwi jockeys have ever been caught on drugs.

    You would expect there would be little appetite by anyone to be playing games right now - so tend to agree.
    Mind you a mate of mine who is an owner in the game mentioned to me he thinks he might end up with several drives tomorrow night
    When I said LOL in reply he told me he wasn't joking and that  I was at $8 in drivers challenge ....

    When we had a horse in the late 1980's, our trainer / driver told one of the owners he missed the days of the late 70's at Alex Park when him and some very  well known others pretty well worked out some of the results  a few days in advance.  In a real classic he remarked " There are just too many of these young bastards now who want to win every race "  LOL

    Have to assume they have some form of information - texts, phone call etc which suggested that a fix was on for that race.  I doubt it would be based on the video alone.
