JCA

2 posts in this topic

Just wondering out loud.     Looking at the "cases" that are the main subjects for the JCA on race night appear to be Horses Breaking and Whip Strikes.   Even an old bugger like me could work these out and they are covered in the rules anyway, so why do we need 2 (no doubt) highly paid personnel in attendance on race day/night?      Most of the cases where drivers/trainers etc. give evidence are usually on non race days or at a subsequent race meeting.     Can the industry afford the money for these committees when the stipes could adjudicate on matters like those mentioned above and then, if anyone wanted to dispute the stipes findings or penalties etc. then this could be heard on a day during the following week (like for example league's judiciary system)   Surely it is a complete waste of money where the only case heard is one of a driver using the whip for 11 strikes!      Where income is falling dramatically, you would hope the board is looking at ways to cut costs.

Excellent report - a real double up and made worse by doubling the whole judiciary they combine to be double useless .
