Note my comments on another thread that RVL seems to be heavy with marketing people and lawyers and light on people who know about horses.
This is why you get debacles like the time it took to deal with O'Brien, Moody, etc. and the new farce, the All Star Mile voting. Obviously run by marketers who have NFI and stables taking advantage of that.
FWIW I voted for Hartnell
but it looks like he has no chance of making the field unless RVL includes him. He is arguably the highest rating miler in the country behind you know who.
The marketing people are bombarding me with follow up emails, including asking me to "share" my vote. As if I'm going to let all my family and friends and professional colleagues know that I voted for Hartnell - 95% of them wouldn't have a clue what it would be about.
This is obviously being run by young marketing people.
Why don't some of the older racing people (if there are any still left at RVL) step in and take charge and end this farce.
