    Why odd Allan, sadly we can go days without anybody posting (a week if you ban me LOL) and although we have been covering all things Cobalt, it is not strictly a harness story

    Racing cannot get much worse headlines than 'shooting' and I saw The Sun today and read an article about crowds being down at both the Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate.

    I bet they would have liked the Moody verdict to have come out today too - so that they could all get scant coverage due to Christmas

    After today's scandal they may have to develop a campaign: If you drink and ride, you're a bloody idiot!

    Gallops Racing has got real problems when suspended trainer Peter Moody thinks he is more important than Chief Steward Terry Bailey
    I cannot find a link but Patrick Bartley has a story in today's Age: Racing chief faces probe that while hosting a function Moody said he would not work as a trainer under chief steward Terry Bailey, whose house was shot at last year, and head of integrity Dayle Brown
    The Racing chief in the headline refers to Melbourne Racing Club head Brodie Arnhold as from the audience, Arnhold allegedly called out: "We can fix that."

    The article also reports that Moody also said that if any point of law was won in the cobalt cases it would be untenable for the chairman of Racing Victoria David Moodie, Bailey, Brown and chief veterinary officer Brian Stewart to continue in their roles

    One paragraph states Moody was forced to apologise recently after he spoke at a luncheon in Rockhampton, where he said: "Wait until you see the face on Bailey - when I com into the stewards' room with a microphone and cameras for Racing.com during the spring."

    The full article can be found in The Age, Friday July 22 2016

    I was amazed and must commend Ch7's Caulfield Cup coverage today for spending a few minutes going through all the issues that are dogging the gallops right now.
    I don't know whether the Melbourne Age was any different to our 'early print' country edition but in contrast to Ch7 they only gave RV Chairman David Moodie standing aside a couple of paragraphs in the bottom corner of the 2nd back page. They don't cover Harness but I would be surprised if such a story in our industry didn't get a bigger splash
