Some of Australia's biggest names in Horse Racing are caught up in the doping scandal in Vic (Smerdon , Vasil , Birchley) etc , with the cheats on seats (trots) scandal recently & now the 'Ponies' it'll be interesting to see if the Hypocrites at ABC make a Four Corners type expose on both horse racing codes & now is the time for the public in NSW & across Australia to demand a cleanup of the horse racing codes as it's clear as day that doping /race fixing is widespread & the wastage (horses sent to knackeries) is at an all time high.

I'll be shocked if anything is done by the ABC / other media outlets & grubby politicians in this country,I'm expecting the whole lot of them to sweep it under the rug , Sydney Morning Herald described Racing Vic scandal perfectly in today's paper as the biggest racing scandal since the Fine Cotton affair

Watched the 6.30 National News on NBN 9, showed footage of Mr. Mestrov's travelling show at Bathurst today! Showing old footage of "Live Baiting" (From the ABC). Why let the Media in?
No coverage of the "Trots" recent scandal. Or the "Thoroughbred" scandal which only broke yesterday. We are Targeted as an easy way to pull on the Publics heart strings. The show travels to Lismore tomorrow, Ban the Media.

That’s Toole’s Electorate. I wrote elsewhere that a well-dressed man went into Toole’s Office I think at Lithgow, and asked to see Mr Toole about the greyhound industry. The alleged reply was something like, “don’t worry, we’ve found another way to close down the industry.” That particular man was suppose to be a greyhound participant, just dressed really well.

Yes, they have found a way, by increasing or exploding the administrative costs n over regulation of the industry. The grand tour will probably cost about $30k, but we will see what $900k bought when the previous CEO’s salary was about $250k.

Unfortunately for them...just like the proverbial "Iceberg" we are seeing only a fraction of what is occurring....Fascinating to see what is brought into the light and more importantly...what is not !!!
Our friend "Archie" appears to have stumbled into a " HORNETS NEST" also..... which may have a direct connection to this threads topic... and just like Lehman brothers in America it might prove to be Too Big to do anything about.....The new Betfair Aust. owner and his packets of "OMO" may have some interesting observations on it ....What a truly educational time in which we live... especially those of us who can " Remember Back " to the days of Free Love...Wildlife Warriors...and protecting Goannas.....

Comes the time.....I'm putting my hand up for another "tour of duty"....This is too much fun...wouldn't miss it for quids.

Pardon the cryptic post.... however rest assured that the entire thing relates to what is now [hopefully] about to be exposed in "Racing"

"Free Love"....Yeah Good luck with that.
Some of you will remember and understand...Hopefully.

A man far smarter than me once preached to me that "Cleanliness was next to Godliness"......if that truly is the case then surely there is hope for ALL that reside in Aust. as I have never seen so much emphasis being put on doing the Laundry......Mums all over would have been proud....
