Pause for Thought

It was Team Lanagan and the British Horseracing Stewards who denied Team O'Brien the Third Leg of the Triple Crown in the St Leger at Doncaster on Saturday September 15th 2012
Sadly we see the traumatised and terrified MAIN SEQUENCE lurching from one disaster to the next. With no Stewards Inquiry into the seriously dangerous interference that took place in the first couple of furlongs involving CAMELOT. Why not? When is this grave error of justice going to be corrected?
LAST SATURDAY'S ST LEGER RESULT CALLED INTO QUESTION
Saturday September 15th 2012)
It was MAIN SEQUENCE (USA) 3 9-0 partner T E DURCAN 10-1 who eventually finished 5th of the 9 runners, who scuppered CAMELOT'S chances to achieve his Triple Crown bid. It was the traumatised MAIN SEQUENCE who clipped CAMELOT heels at about the first furlong marker. Due to this both these horses and their riders could have been brought down, lost their lives even.
If as has been reported .... CAMELOT appeared to be moving badly .... hardly surprising after suffering his heels being clipped by MAIN SEQUENCE one of the most dangerous types of interference there is, a very painful and highly dangerous experience for both CAMELOT and the traumatised MAIN SEQUENCE who over the first two furlongs was giving TED DURCAN a shocking ride, attempting to tank off with him, the only thing that TED could do to stop him being carted was to attempt to anchor him in behind CAMELOT which is exactly what he did, and in doing this CAMELOT got his heels clipped, a very sore injury which would most certainly have effected his stride, but further the unsettled state that MAIN SEQUENCE was in, and the interference MAIN SEQUENCE caused, was by then picked up by CAMELOT who then became very unsettled and frightened himself, as JOSEPH described it
MAIN SEQUENCE 'Lit him up' "Lit CAMELOT up," disturbed CAMELOT, and frightened CAMELOT as well. So then it was not only MAIN SEQUENCE who was 'Lit Up' it was CAMELOT who was 'Lit Up' as well. FEAR travel's fast in a bunch of horses, like greased lightening.
ST LEGER 2012
This result can never be allowed to stand.
This race has a status to uphold. Not only that, there was a competitor challenging to win this, the third leg of the Triple Crown. And due to how this race paned out to be, he was put out of this race at the first furlong marker
by a colt so traumatized and so frightened that he ran straight into CAMELOT injuring CAMELOT, causing CAMELOT considerable pain.Where was the stewards inquiry? When is this Stewards Inquiry going to take place?
CAMELOT was the outright winner of this race he did not interfere with any of the other runners, he himself however suffered considerable dangerous interference therefore allowing for this and the way that he finished he was the worthy winner and achieved the Triple Crown ... On the penalty points allowance he deserved due to the serious interferance that was forced upon him.
CAMELOT and JOSEPH O'BRIEN'S TRIPLE CROWN
On viewing this race as a whole the true outcome should be as follows:
Disqualify MAIN SEQUENCE (USA)3 9-0 partner T E DURCAN for seriously dangerous interference ongoing over the first two furlongs burdened upon CAMELOT partner JOSEPH O'BRIEN who not only sustained considerable pain when hit from behind by a traumatised MAIN SEQUENCE but also was 'Lit up" by the traumatised MAIN SEQUENCE for most of this race it can be seen that CAMELOT was closing fast on ENCKE to the line, official distance stated to be three quarters of a length.
Such interferance suffered by CAMELOT to be rated as loosing 20 lengths in this race, without suffering such serious and dangerous interferance CAMELOT and JOSEPH O'BRIEN would have won this as they liked. Horses do feel pain just the same as we do, so how is it that the bloodhorse illiterate British horseracing government are running British horseracing like the horses are wooden rocking horses?
WHY WAS THERE NO STEWARDS INQUIRY CALLED TO LOOK INTO THE INTERFERANCE THAT TOOK PLACE AND COST CAMELOT THIS RACE?CAMELOT did not interfere with any of the other runners. so why is he left to suffer all this with bloodhorse illiterate stewards? No way can such as this go on any longer.
WHY WAS A STEWARDS INQUIRY NOT CALLED TO LOOK INTO THE REASON AS TO WHY MAIN SEQUENCE WAS SO TRAUMATISED?
Where Oh Where is the Bloodhorse Literate Licensing Department Zone?
CAMELOT WAS LEFT TO BARE THE BRUNT OF DANGEROUS INTERFERANCE AS IF IT WAS ALL PART OF THE RACE.
THIS IS NOT RIGHT
THIS IS NOT RIGHT
WHERE ARE THE PENALTY POINTS IN BRITISH HORSERACING OVER ISSUES AS SERIOUS AS THIS ONE?
MAIN SEQUENCE looks to be another like BLUSHING ET the colt MONTY ROBERTS saved. So where are the British Horseracing Government on serious problems as this? No British RSPCA people have the Bloodhorse Literary skills that MONTY ROBERTS has achieved.
