A jockey having a bet -- is not automatically an offense


                                   Ben Melham has been charged in relation to betting offences

It is well past time that the racing industry matured to accept reality.

Jockeys offer opinions, including privately

................... anyone benefiting would be wise to respect and honor a winning tip.

It is fanciful to think that a jockey would not talk to a partner in a joint-venture.

No one is talking 'open slather' with conflicts of interest -- just normal freedoms alone and with family and friends.

RVL has substantial integrity issues on its own account to deal with before getting lost in matters of no real consequence.

What would we all do if a jockey answered a question -- which of your rides is most likely to win?

Unless the rules have been changed ...which they haven't..... it's safe to say he'll get a holiday the only question is how long will it be.

Sadly true: it is a policy issue which could be dealt with more sensibly.
