RNSW seem to have no problem being very heavy handed on dishing out punishment to it's "lesser name"
It gives it "stars" very different treatment....Why?.... they want them present at their big race days because there is a buck in it!
RVL's decision with Jamie Kah especially, would come at huge cost to them.....she brings the sort of world headlines the industry craves.
The 1k fine for J Mac for absolutely flogging a horse along with light penalties for "star" jockeys killing horses and injuring other jockeys just prove that.
Poison Pen's Meramist sadist got fined $3.7k for hitting a horse with a piece of poly pipe at an abattoir.....nearly 4 times J Mac's punishment....but he was on a racecourse.
