A Sad Day For Racing

Finally after years of open corruption the BHA have acted. To little to late IMO, Shame on the BHA. That is why it is sad. It has taken far to long. I am referring to the Corrupt "EDDIE AHERN", The times i can think were he has got horses beaten, without any regard for the punters. Good bye Eddie and Good ridance, Filthy Jockey finally got your come uppance. Ban to follow I hope he gets a life time ban, Im sure there will be 1 or 2 more willing to take up the lead!

Re: A Sad Day For Racing The BHA should headhunt some of those who run the Far Eastern jurisdictions where these acts of contempt are not tolerated one iota. As for Ahern, I hear there is a vacancy in America at Cathal Lynch's stable following the departure of Fergal.

Re: A Sad Day For Racing Completely agree with a ban although this is just a needle in a haystack. Lets be honest stuff goes on every week especailly on the all weather with certain operations and not a whiff of a stewards, however some of the best practitioners are much more 'cute' in their misdemeanors- one of the classic tricks being to position their mount well wide on the final bend and running on to finish out of the places- Although if we are honest the lack of prize money has a lot to answer for in this respect in class 4-6 races when especially later in the week there will be reasonable liquidity on the exchanges and laying is easily disguised and a resonable profit to cover over and above the expenses is easily achieved. MInd you I've just seen a clip of Sligo last evening-umm I wonder if that result would have been altered if it hadn't been the MUllins yard's fav which got beaten!!

Point 1. I'm all for trying to get a horse to a win handicap mark, some horses can only win at a certain grade. And people lay horses based on that, and GL to them. It is when a horse is good enough, and thru the jockey not doing his/her job right has got the horse beaten. However, there are some blatant cheats, who have no regard to instructions, and have their own agenda, as they know with other people involved they can make a pretty penny, we all have our ideas on who they are, and you should bet accordingly when in that situation. Ahern was like a full blown cancer on the sport, ,,,no tears here. Point 2. It was a strange decision as we have seen worse without a change, consistency is all we want, but how long have supporters been crying for that? I don't think it will ever change in the foreseeable.

Re: A Sad Day For Racing I'm all for stringing up cheats and i realise a lot got away with it in the past and probably one or two are still at it to some degree. What hacks me off is the people who would gladly participate in these gambles, coups, lays whatever you want to call them and then complain when their selection on another day gets done by one and shout racing is crooked from the rooftops. Two wrongs dont make a right but people need to think about slagging folk off as though they are some kind of perfect citizen when they piss themselves with excitement at the thought of being on the right side of 'privileged information'.
