Crossings

Recommended Posts

It looks like grass track racing is here to stay, unfortunately it is going to take a fatality or serious injury with the current grass crossings. It really sums up the professionalism of harness racing, living with there heads in the sand. The game is a joke with no welfare to drivers or horses, there is still no action to race fixing, drugs and cheats. Last one out, turn off the lights..

There are strict rules in play in the rules of harness racing for the benefit of the participants. Whip rules have been adjusted and penalties given when breached as a 'improvement' to horse welfare debateably , just like at the thoroughbreds.

Blair Orange did time recently for the sake of a few beers? stewards were on to it ok? and McGrath (8 years) Alford and M Kerr , sure to be known to many, as they have been caught and penalised for illegal activities. So the No Action does NOT seem correct. Probably the Racing and greyhound codes in more disarray than the great lot of Harness people in NZ .
