Corrupt horse torture to continue unimpeded in the ACT – Mulcahy very happy.

By johnboy 9 March 2006 23

With his strong historical ties to the gambling industry it should come as no surprise that Richard Mulcahy has been first out of the gate in welcoming the resolution of the horse racing insurance crisis.

An amendment to the Racing Act 1999 that will see Racing NSW extend accident compensation insurance to provide cover for jockeys, apprentices, and approved riders performing racing, track work or barrier trials in the ACT was today passed in the Legislative Assembly.

Personally I think horse racing is a nasty business, but I’d prefer it banned after due debate rather than through bureaucratic inertia.

What’s Your opinion?

With all due respect its pretty clear you know nothing of the racing industry, even more so by your own admissions.

Its best you leave the subject to people who actually know what they’re talking about. As a race horse owner that would be ummmmmmmmmm…….me.

If there was any sniff of impropriety I would be involved. When my horse is not in work in Canberra he is happily running around a large field on the NSW South Coast getting treated magnificently. When he comes up to race he loves to do it.

Every sport and industry has been tarred with the brush of impropriety in years past, racing included. Having said this it never ceases to amaze me with the baseless anecdotes told to me about drugs and maltreatment of race horses by people who have never seen the inside of a racecourse, or seen a horse in its environs.

Horse slavery???? Oh my hat!!

If your idea of slavery is being fed magnificently, treated like a god and, when put out to pasture, having sex for the rest of your life then I’m happy to be enslaved.

Leave the reality to the knowledgeable.

BTW, an each way bet on Thats Just Great in the Catbird Stakes next Friday at Canberra is advised
