A must quote to start this section has to come from Mark Kavanagh after Maldevian scratching.
       "Better to have run and lost than never run at all".
Just gotta love the guy such a breath of fresh air to racing and is kicking butts big time with his runners.  :noteworthy:

"I've been kicking with the wind all spring.  I suppose it had to happen," said Mark Kavanagh on his shock turnaround in fortunes with Maldivian.

 :D I just love the quote from Luke Nolan referring to a spray he received from TVN's Richard Callender the day before.
   "When I have nothing to say...why talk". 8-)
I hate these interviws straight after a race as the poor devils are so dry in the mouth it is extremly hard to talk for them,Callender wouldn't know what that is like as I don't think he is ever too far from food or a drink.

It was the only dicision they could havemade, King High was entitled to the run and may have won with a ease if he got the run.

I say may have because we all know Vo Rogue fought like a tiger and was tougn to get past, But Kings High was entitled to the run.

I didn't hear the quote. They mention it from time to time on 2KY.  I saw Vic once at Balarat races in about 1990-91. He had gold rings on every other finger. Gold pins on his suite coat, gold bracelet. A real  character.

colin hayes horses were always favourably treated in protest hearings,and this being one of them,it was a slight check when vo rolled inwards,far worse interference than this has been dismissed,and the margin was 3/4l,then again they upheld the protest against choisir when he beat the protesting horse(3rd over the line) by 3l,so nothing surprises me,ps,planchet was 2nd over the line,so was awarded the race,andi was on planchet,so it isn't my pocket talking

I have no problems with the Choisir result either he should have lost that race on protest. There is no way in the world he crossed the line in first position fair and square.

  :lol:  Lets Elope knocked half the field down, disgraceful.

It will only take the death of a jockey and work cover to do their job properly and the relegation rule will come into force.   :thumbsup:

thats not what they base protest decisions on,its based on,did the winner cost the protesting horse,more ground than the beaten margin

what about the 1 guy walters horse(VEREZA) lost on protest at rosehill a couple of years ago,3v1,beadman on 3rd horse,beaten about 3.5l,that was a correct decision as well?
like i said i backed planchett who got the verdict in choisirs race,had a nice bet on it as well,am still in disbelief at collecting

I know what they base the dicisions on -OPINION - And in all those cases i have mentioned it cost the protestee the CHANCE to finish first.

In my OPINION it should be the guilty party who has to defend their position, their right to keep the race not the other way around.

Agree with Da Judge, the penalty for the jockey should be unrelated to the result of a protest.  The protest hearing should consider 'did the winner cost the protesting horse,more ground than the beaten margin?'.  The jockey penalty should consider the degree he endangered other jockeys and horses.

ie. 1991 Cup was rightly dismissed, but you might well argue that King should have got 6 months.  

Authorised:  If they operate protests on your basis, aren't they retaining the opinion aspect, but now beginning with the opinion that the jockey was guilty?  Maybe you're right, but your way doesn't remove or reduce opinion from the process.
