Nothing like making wild and outlandish comments ! "In the mainsteam (whatever that is) there is no issue ". Who said ? "He is highly respected and receives plaudits from all and sundry " Does that mean Messara and his business partner , the clown on talkback. And your character reference for all this is that grubby Melbourne property developer who has been thumbing his nose at the Rules of Racing for so long  now that their "Integrity  Department " doesn't have the balls to insist he obeys the rules like everyone else.

As far as the Everest is concerned it has cost Racing NSW virtually nothing and last year's edition was the highest betting race

apart from the Melbourne Cup for NSW .

With participants required to commit for 3 years a year with a dominant horse will make no difference and also place money
gives a profit there as well.

It was a sensational idea and I'm surprised another racing jurisdiction around the country hasn't moved on the idea yet.

It received widespread mainstream media coverage and that would have contributed to the high betting figures.

As for the criticism pre-race that the MRC was somehow being snubbed I'd be very surprised if their betting figures weren't up as well and Everest day looks like it will morph into one of the biggest days on the Australian Racing calendar with the MRC right in the thick of it without having to do a thing.

But you are projecting it as if there is some "issue" regarding Peter V'Landys that you need to take sides on.

In the mainstream there is no issue.

He is highly respected and receives plaudits from all and sundry. Even the most parochial of Victorians Lloyd Williams was suggesting that RVL head hunt him.

It is only when you get into social media that people make out there is some issue. Ray Thomas is not breaching any sort of rule regardless of whether he is employed by Racing NSW or is not.
You only have to read the comments on Kerrin McEvoy 10 years ago to see that "all and sundry" are often completely wrong.

Time and history will judge V'Landys and what form The Everest will be in 10 years........well no one knows.
