THE temperature soared at Rosehill yesterday but it had nothing on the heated exchange between two leading bookmakers in the betting ring.

While they didn't trade blows, rails bookies Robbie Waterhouse and Michael Eskander let their emotions fly after race three. Punters stood in amazement as they witnessed Waterhouse and Eskander trade verbal blows in front of Eskander's stand. While it was unclear what triggered the outburst, it is understood there is bad blood between the pair dating back to bets wagered on the US election. Waterhouse, who is positioned at the opposite end of the ring, confirmed the altercation had taken place but did not want to comment about the reasons behind the outburst. Eskander, a Melbourne-based bookmaker who only recently gained a licence to operate on the rails in Sydney, also opted to keep details of the incident close to his chest but said he did not wish to do any further business with the Waterhouse family. Racing NSW steward Marc Van Gestel said he was unware of the incident and that nothing had been reported.

Top Bookies Face Inquiry Over Verbal Stoush
Monday, 2 March 2009: Leading rails bookmkers Robbie Waterhouse and Michael Eskander will face stewards inquiry into their heated verbal altercation in the betting ring at Rosehill last Saturday.

The clash between Waterhouse and Eskander was the talk of the track after hundreds of punters witnessed the pair almost come to blows over a betting dispute.

It is understood the argument was sparked by a disagreement over the payment of a credit bet placed by Waterhouse with Eskander.

Eskander ha declared he will no longer do business with Waterhouse following Saturday's argument.

Racing NSW stewards have called the two bookmakers to appear before them at 9am on Friday at the city offices of Racing NSW.

A bookmaker's clerk has also been called to the inquiry.

The Waterhouse/Eskander inquiry will be followed at 1pm by the continuation of the adjourned inquiry into the riding tactics adopted on the Gai Waterhouse stablemates Rabbuka and El Meroo in the final race at Rosehill last Saturday.

The inquiry was opened on Saturday into the circumstances of the heavily backed winner Rabbuka (Blake Shinn) obtaining a run to the inside of El Meroo (Nash Rawiller) rounding the home turn.

Shinn and Rawiller have been called to Friday's inquiry.

An inquiry into an entry in the betting ledger of a bookmaker fielding at the Randwick race meeting on December 20 will continue prior to the first race at Randwick on Saturday.

In Melbourne today leading bookmaker Simon Beasley pleaded guilty to two charges of improper practice relating to unrecorded betting transactions.

Another 11 chrags were withdrawn by Racing Victoria at the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board after Beasley lodged his guilty pleas.

The charges relate to bets taken by Beasley between April 21, 2006 and November 19, 2008.

Beasley pleaded guilty to failing to record betting transactions properly, accurately and completely and for attempting to destroy evidence relating to the stewards investigation.

The inquiry has been adjourned until April 2.
