Grooms – NHA To Act
Finally, the silence has been broken !
Even though Rian du Plessis has claimed in the past that the NHA has no jurisdiction over him (them), the NHA should proceed on this pledge and do the right thing and institute steps to ensure that the funding is forthcoming from the Horseracing Trust which holds around 35% of the Phumelela shares for this very purpose (amongst others in relation to development, education and
It is a brilliant idea to have grooms registered by the NHRA. They must be treated as equals to all other registered members. They must have the same voting rights as every other member. The NHRA must not discriminate.
With grooms being the largest employed grouping in horse racing, they can use their group voting power to change the rules and the constitution. Best yet with such a voting block they can remove the directors of the NHRA.

A note to myself: Ask the NHRA if they will allow all Phumelela and Gold Circle employees to be registered with the NHRA. The answer should be that they should be registered as they are no different to the grooms. They are employees in the horse racing business.
At least we know that press releases from the NHRA are to be treated with circumspection. Is this press release for the grooms or government or the Tote?
For one representative body to act for all grooms will never work. The NHRA cannot dictate to the grooms to which body they should belong. It is like the NHRA saying that it will not deal with owners unless they are members of Gold Circle or the Racing
