Very frustrating when you know a there is a good horse that just needs a decent trainer. Vite Loni fits the bill.

Wendy Walter has decided to hang her trainers gear up and will close the stables on 5/7/2014....Jo Pride expected to take the stables and hoping for some of the horses....I wonder if the Darley horses will go home to O'Shea?...Wendy has done a wonderful job since Guys death that he would be very proud of,good luck whatever she decides to do from here on.

This from NSW stewards on 30 May....... :o

Rejection Of Nominations – Licensed Trainer Darren Smith - Cobalt

Racing NSW, as part of its ongoing operations to protect the integrity of the New South Wales Thoroughbred Racing Industry, has acted proactively by conducting covert surveillance of a number of stables.
Accordingly, Racing NSW Stewards and its Investigation and Surveillance Unit conducted a further unannounced inspection of the stables of Newcastle licensed trainer Darren Smith this morning and obtained evidence of the administration of Cobalt to horses trained by Mr Smith.
Elevated levels of Cobalt have also been detected in horses trained by Mr Smith. The Stewards, pursuant to AR50, have rejected the nomination of all horses trained by Mr Smith pending the outcome of an Inquiry at a time to be determined.
Racing NSW and its Stewards are committed to ensuring that the integrity of Thoroughbred racing in New South Wales is not compromised. They will continue to be relentless in their pursuit of persons obtaining an unfair advantage through the use of prohibited substances.

Not sure if it has been finalised yet; but I understand Darren Smith is goooooone! :wavecry:

How wonderful to see the support and protection shown to Wendy Walter by Blake Shinn and Peter Robl while she is mourning the death of Guy...What a wonderful job under unbelievable stress the whole team have gone through after the sudden loss of Guy to get the winners the stable has produced since his loss...God bless them all.

When my pick was scratched today I was hoping for the Wendy Walter trained Blue Smoke to win (didn't back it)as it's the only living foal of Spinning Hill the Tait family mare that gave us so many thrills but it ran 4th.

Queen of cups loses by a length

CUPS queen Sheila Laxon is facing disaster after a bitter Supreme Court row ignited by her racehorse owners.

A judge has ruled against Laxon and her training partner John Symons after a long and expensive legal action brought by the owners.

Laxon, who trained the mighty Ethereal to the Melbourne and Caulfield cups of 2001, last night said she was “shattered” by the outcome.

She and Symons were heavily criticised by Judge John Digby in a 195-page judgment.

The Courier-Mail has been told Laxon and Symons could face a $1 million bill by the time legal costs are awarded.

The owners, Frank and Karen Butler and Glenn Fielding, had been friends of Symons and Laxon but wound up in an acrimonious challenge over horse purchases.

A total of 51 horses were at the centre of the action brought against Symons and Laxon and their company JSL.

“The plaintiffs’ central contention is that Mr Symons and Ms Laxon sold to them partial interests in racehorses in circumstances where the JSL parties failed to ensure that the plaintiffs would take good title to the horses,” Justice Digby said.

They alleged this came about when Laxon and Symons did not find the additional investors to pay the Magic Millions and Inglis auction houses so vendors could be paid.
This prevented the horses from being trialled or raced.

Laxon and Symons were also accused of altering registration papers lodged with Racing Victoria for four horses and failing to prepare horses for the 2009 Ready to Run sales, as promised.

The Butlers and Mr Fielding withheld payments to JSL once the dispute began.

That amount, a total of just over $350,000, was agreed by both parties and will come out of the compensation awarded to the plaintiffs.

Mr Fielding’s barrister Damien Sheales last night said: “We are obviously pleased with the outcome. I really can’t see repercussions for the wider racing industry.

“The court has made damning findings about the conduct of two participants in the industry. As all cases do, this was a case that turned on its own facts.”

Justice Digby said he was satisfied that several instances “severely impugn” Ms Laxon’s credibility and records supplied by her were “untruthful, inaccurate and unreliable”.

Laxon, who has moved back to New Zealand, said she was “flabbergasted” at the finding and her legal team was reviewing the decision.

 
“I’m shattered,’’ she said.

Judges are used to being lied to and misled. They are used to witnesses representing or misrepresenting facts to show their own actions in the best possible light. These things happen in almost every trial and judges consider it par for the course. They don't usually say the sorts of things quoted above when presenting their findings unless they have been particularly incensed by the behaviour of an individual.

Bubba has also opened a thread on this topic "Sheila Laxon".

Probably a good idea if we keep all comments on this topic on the one thread.
Suggest we make the Sheila Laxon thread the one as it is the most specifically related.

The amount of trainers joining hands to train is growing with Lee and Anthony Freedman the latest...funny Lee coming back after David Hayes and Dabernig joined forces and did so well in the Spring.

After the loss of Guy Walter Spinning Hill's only foal Blue Smoke now a 3yo was sent to Patrick Payne and today had her 2nd start to run 10th,her first start at Goulburn produced a 4th and two trials have shown nothing but I hope Patrick can turn her around for the Nivisons and Tait's.
