From "Silks&Saddles" this week . .
NO matter what you thought of Archie Butterfly and his sometimes seemingly outrageous claims about issues and high profile personalities of the racing game… you read them.
Archie's website was getting 70,000 hits a day and was still firing on all fours when the coppers suddenly appeared last week, raided his home, laid some charges that will be defended and closed his popular website.
Few would believe the raid was an act in the public interest.
It seems Archie stepped on the toes of someone with sufficient influence to have him unceremoniously gagged ... the full details of which will no doubt emerge. And we can't wait to divulge them. Meanwhile a few of the QRIC chiefs might sleep easier, but Archie has made certain that everyone is well aware of the shortcomings of our much maligned integrity unit that survives only because of the recent election result.
It might also be safely stated that harness racing in Queensland is well into the bell lap because of the startling and unchallenged revelations of the popular scribe … the man who possibly knew too much. And paid the price for sharing it with his many followers.
