    While one empathises with him and his wife, he did do good that was applauded by leading trainers.
    For that kudos to him.

    What really needs to be investigated is how this was in the public domain for so long and negligently handled and denied.
    These are the people that really need to follow the example set by him and do the honourable thing

  2. Dawid says:

    If this resignation was on the back of a large payout, the members of the NHRA should pass a resolution to sue each NHRA director personally for the recovery of the payment to LB. The directors should have immediately suspended him and after that had a hearing and fired him. If the NHRA directors had any conscience and knew right from wrong, they would have resigned already. Imagine having these NHRA directors interviewing and employing the next CEO. They gave messed up so much that the thought of them being involved in the process makes my whole body shudder nervously.
