    Steroids drugs prodders. Can’t get any worse. What does one have to do to be warned off these days. Seriously seems anything goes

  2. Steve Reid says:

    So to put this into perspective – You get less of a fine for doping than Joey Ramsden did for throwing pieces of paper around.

    Sounds about right. I have been banging on for years about the the inefficiencies at Racing Control, and in particular Arnold Hyde. How are we ever going to sort out the mess when the clowns are in charge of the party?

  3. Paul says:

    Quite correct. Although the penalty for JR was wholly suspended, the quantum was greater than that of SM – and the suspending ought not to affect the quantum, as it is effectively a penalty in waitibg.

  4. Brendon says:

    Where is Vee Moodley and Hyde? Show us that you have some leadership qualities before the ship sinks and explain your inconsistent actions and sanctions! The last few months has been rough for many, especially those on the receiving end of the NHA’s casual, off the cuff punishment. Does the NHA not have rule books, precedent and guidelines?
