Short Heads - our weekly news snippets feature

You can’t say what you like anywhere – but more so in horseracing.

Comments made by trainer Lola Crawford during a telephonic conversation with a staff member of the NHRA, where she conducted herself in a manner which might have had the effect of bringing into disrepute the good name of the CEO of the National Horseracing Authority of SA, saw her fined R2500 which was wholly suspended for a period of eighteen months on condition she is not found guilty of a contravention of Rule 72.1.26 during that period.

    Some detail would be nice. Was there a Hearing (guilty or not guilty plea)/an admission of guilt signed/etc? I am not seeing this in the NHRA website.

  3. Hylton says:

    This article lacks substance and is a waste of space….. No details of profanity used.
    Vague journalism….
    If you want to write on this game vague reports are of no use to readers ….. does not tickle our tastebuds

    In any event how shall a telephonic conversation privy to 2 people bring into disrepute the name of a person when details of that conversation is not in the public domain.

    Charges may not be relevant to the rule.
