    Did his prior behaviour not get taken into account ?

    Parade ring fine

    Behaviour in a lift

    This is a second strike that does not warrant a suspension

  2. Cecil Pienaar says:

    Do as I say, not as I do…. Good Riddance..

    In Afrikaans we have a beautiful word – Skarminkel

  3. Debi Vogt says:

    He is a sellout and as far as i am concerned he has over stayed his welcome …..

  4. Cecil Pienaar says:

    I was going to recommend UKZN for a course in Anger Management, but on 2nd thoughts.

    Maybe elsewhere ,,🤭

  5. Pops says:

    Was the Racing Association Board not even prepared to copy and paste their previous explanation for doing nix to their powerful CEO concerning his violent actions.
    Was he contrite,Mr Leaf?

    Godfather Larry.
    Never really regarded him seriously. Was not his own person.
    Ed, is he still involved in the RA?

  7. Frans says:

    I was shocked and disappointed by Mr Leaf’s statement that LW “always acted in the best interests of all racehorse owners” – I am assuming this was said tongue in cheek and that hopefully he was part of the pressure that finally got LW to resign(??). The man was bad for the RA, bad for the reputation of the racehorse industry and contributed significantly to the division and negative sentiment that still pervades racing today.
