PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
STEWARDS INQUIRY TRIALS.
The British Horseracing Authority (BHA’S) aim to attempt to introduce televised
stewards’ inquiries, at present still in the ‘TRIALS STAGE’ . These tests are to be carried out today at Ascot’s King George vi and Queen Elizabeth Stakes Meeting. To be followed up next week at the Glorious Goodwood Meeting, but to be confined there, to just the Friday and Saturday July 30 & 31 only.
JAMIE STIER, head of Raceday Operations and Regulations employed by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has this to say “ We are delighted to be able to continue this trial at these high-profile meetings. It is pleasing that the jockey’s have thrown their support behind this .....
“Through this trial we hope those watching will gain a more comprehensive understanding of the processes and considerations given by the stewards in determining the result of a race which is subject to an enquiry.”
However the question that remains to be asked .... Is the BHA’S Head of Raceday Operations and Regulations JAMIE STIER 'Bloodhorse Literate' or 'Bloodhorse Illiterate?'
IF JAMIE STIER is ‘Bloodhorse Illiterate’ he has no business to be holding a post such as this. This needs to apply to Stewards also. To act in Regulation or to act in Disciplinary, personnel need to be ‘Bloodhorse Literate’ at this level otherwise they will be making dangerous and shocking errors of judgment blaming others unjustly.
A race recently that immediately springs to mind where a ‘Stewards Inquiry’ took place was on Friday 9th July, the July Cup at Newmarket. A race with a first prize to the supposed true winner of £227,080 (Two hundred and twenty seven thousand pounds, plus) The very reason why Johnny Murtagh is not able to ride here today, as he received a riding ban in that race, of 6 days. But amazingly the horse he was attempting to ride that day STARSPANGLEDBANNER was allowed to receive and keep all this prize money, after crossing, taking the ground of at least six other competitors putting them all out of contention during this actual race. What sort of stewarding is this? Is anyone allowed to know? Get to the winning post first, by fair means or foul, seems to hold sway with the British Bloodhorse Illiterate Stewarding personnel’ What a shocking way to regulate British Horseracing . How can any jockey possibly know what way, or which way he is to be treated whilst race riding? No wonder Richard Hughes decided to have a week off before Glorious Goodwood.
