Letter of the Week

Shame, shame, shame

Well once again it seems that some of the “most successful” trainers have been found guilty of impropriety. Tell me how the owners feel about their horses being “topped up” — not to mention the others whose horses who were beaten in those races.
Let us consider the media, who attribute so many virtues to these “champion trainers”, and the many companies supporting racing who have rewarded these trainers with things such as cars and large sums of money, while as usual the owners are rewarded by paying for the pleasure.
I am pleased that (some members of) this rabble have been disqualified for life and so they should be — not only for cheating but for putting the horse itself at risk. 
Shame on them.
