There were three interesting two year old races run last Saturday brought to us live by Channel4 horseracing team on two channel’s M4 and C4 two from Newmarket the 1.55 and the 2.30. And one from Goodwood the 2.50.
The 2.30 from Newmarket in which 15 ran however, resulted in a Stewards Inquiry, involving three competitors in the closing stages of this race drawing well clear of the rest of the field racing upsides, (three abreast) when dangerous interference reared it’s ugly head.
The money came for the Channon trained filly SAMITAR (rated 123 having had two previous runs, winning at Royal Ascot on the last) the favourite backed down to 11-10, racing far side here with the colt BALTY BOYS on her off side in the middle and with the colt MEHDI (6-1, rated 106. five previous runs finishing 32213) on the stand side. It could be said that the unwanted meat in this sandwich was BALTY BOYS 6-1 (colt rated 110 three previous runs 719) MEHDI and SAMITAR poaching BALTY BOYS ground one came in from BALTY BOYS near side the other came in from BALTY BOYS off side at speed, lethal tactics effectively cutting BALTY BOYS out of his stride therefore putting him out of the race, ensuring he had nowhere to go but backwards, dropping him completely out of contention. So when is horseracing in this country going to be properly regulated? A mean performance. Dirty unsporting tactics. MEHDI and SAMITAR should have been placed last. In these circumstances there was only one clear winner BALTY BOYS.
To address this present void created by bloodhorse illiterate British regulation people who hold posts within the British horseracing authority (BHA) that they are not qualified to handle, have no business to be handling, and have no business to be required to make judgement upon the bloodhorse literate achievers. Noted to be deep routed ongoing over a considerable period of time, manifesting itself, unhealthily, contaminating all those who have achieved true bloodhorse literacy like a cancer, passed on to cruelly effect the racehorses unfortunate enough to be caught up in such deception.
The Channel4 horseracing team broadcast this race live, however they were not allowed to broadcast this enquiry, as neither were they able to give the result of this supposed Stewards Inquiry.
Will cheating be as this in all the supposed sports to take place in the 2012 Olympic Games in London?
