Agree or disagree with the policy Peter but it is not misogyny.

It is more likely that women will be dual licence holders and more likely that they will be based in Melbourne -- and de facto those most likely to be disadvantaged.

The RNSW policy is misguided,  cannot be defended and will change.

The dual licence is an unusual thing -- only John Miller in WA comes to mind.

An appetite suppression drug turned up positive she was stood down and inquiry to be held not likely to escape without some kind of penalty IMO although the drug seems harmless enough unless it improves performance or restricts agility and concentration stewards will have precedents to follow she won't get special treatment.

Racing authorities must have in place due care and diligence for the well being of all registered participants.

An appetite suppression drug is on the banned substance list and all jockey's are aware of it.

But is this journalistic grandstanding once again with headlines like;

"Michelle Payne fails Drug test"

Please, give us all a break. I would be pretty close to the mark if I said at least 50% of our jockey's would at times take an appetite suppression drug.

That doesn't make it right but it's not like Michelle was high on "Dope".

The rule against appetite suppression drugs is purely to protect the jockeys with their long term health especially managing the health of their kidneys.

My guess a 1 month suspension and a fine.

Just look after your body Michelle, you have already been through so much and you have your long term future to consider.

The serious side effects have caused this drugs withdrawal in many countries. This is not a supplement or simple 'appetite suppressant' and does not work as a diuretic; its a highly addictive stimulant for short term usage in the obese

Ascot was last week, she rode in one race and is now back home :beer:
I believe she is going back to ride in the UK, but it could be Goodwood

Authorised is correct Bubba.

Michelle is riding at Ascot in the Shergar Cup, the best known international jockey teams competition in the racing world.

Michelle Payne fined over track comments

Michelle Payne was fined $300 by stewards at Flemington on Saturday for her comments on social media that expressed concerns about the firmness of the track.

While the Melbourne Cup-winning jockey and successful trainer was delighted with her filly Sweet Rockette's closing fourth behind Smart Melody in the Listed Cap D'Antibes Stakes (1100m), she'd earlier tweeted that the three-year-old could be scratched if the track was too firm.


Likely to scratch Sweet Rockette if the track looks too firm. And cop another fine for looking after my horse and owners.Absolute bullshit!

Original thought gets you into trouble in the Orwellian times  :no:

Those last two sentences might have tipped that over the edge perhaps   :lol:

The steward's report would tend to support Michelle's concern.

These horses had lameness issues after a day out on the so called good track yesterday......Theanswermyfriend, Crockett, Hey Doc, Rich Charm, Merriest, Native Soldier, Ef Troop and Mr Garcia. Who would know how many were jarred right up as well.

While accepting there would be varying degrees of lameness here I would say that it will be the last we see of some of these horses for a while.

The problem I have with very firm tracks is purely on the animal welfare issue and if Winx had been at Flemington yesterday there is no way the day would start on a good 3.

 It has to be said that the Randwick good 3 these days is much kinder and horses look like they will really let down on it.

I trust Michelle Payne and I expect other punters would also.

.......... this is a bit like the girl 'not standing' for 'Australians all lets us ring Joyce because .....'
