It's got nothing to do with it ...but it's the only answer they could think up apparently  ...as nonsensical as that is ......V'Landys  has kicked quite a few goals but this isn't one of them .

When can 'no explanation' be tendered as an acceptable 'explanation


RNSW should not be spared the embarrassment of a formal recording of their no-trainer-jockey decision.

Having failed to find any 'media comment' on the RNSW site -- where it should be -- we are left to reprint what was fed to the Terrorgraph -- RNSW's 'paper of record'.

This decision, and the  continuing failure to explain it, is unacceptable in NSW as it is in Victoria and Queensland.

Cop this lot...............

Racing NSW stewards refuse to bend rules for dual licence holder Michelle Payne


RACING NSW stewards have set the record straight about integrity issues surrounding Michelle Payne’s failed bid to ride Husson Eagle at Rosehill on Saturday.

Racing NSW don’t offer dual trainer/jockey licences and only allow those that hold this licence interstate to be a trainer and not a jockey in NSW races.

Van Gestel made it clear he still had concerns with trainers being in the jockeys’ room even if that trainer (under their dual licence) was only acting as a jockey at that particular meeting.

“How many trainers do you know spend the day in the jockeys’ room?” Van Gestel said. “It’s got to be a rule in place for a particular licence type, not just an individual.

 “There were integrity issues presented to the board in consideration of the application and in those circumstances we don’t issue persons with two licences in this state.”

Really, what planet is Van Gestel from?

Maybe he is ready to audition for a role in the next "Dumb and Dumber" movie.

What is this rubbish about a Trainer being in the Jockeys room all day.

Michelle Payne may have been in the Jockeys room for about 2 hours maximum with only one ride and then it would have been the Female Jockey's room with maybe 3 or 4 other female jockeys.

What is she going to say?

What about Harness Racing where there is some stables that don't only Train and Drive but have up to 5 family members driving horses from outside stables as well.

My point that no one has commented on as yet is.

Why isn't this seen as restriction of trade?

We are governed by 1950's thinking in the Racing Industry and I can only hope that they arrive in the 21st century very soon.

Van Gestel needs to get with the times as the new trend for Trainer/Jockey licenses will give battling Jockeys a chance to make a reasonable living.

Mortdale's posting while welcome is mistaken when he refers to 'thinking in the racing industry'.

........... there is no thinking in the racing industry.

As yesterday's race showed Michelle didn't miss out by being prevented from riding Husson Eagle at Rosehill it finished last ...afterwards it was revealed it had a case of the Thumps ..whether they'll persevere with the MM is the question ..on that run a waste of money.

It seems a heavenly influence was not pleased with the RNSW ruling -- get on at longer odds for the MM.
