IN his popular column, ‘SILKS & SADDLES,’ published in the NORTH QUEENSLAND REGISTER, respected racing writer, TERRY BUTTS, blasts the minority Labor Government over the passage of the new Racing Integrity Bill.

Butts declares that Labor defectors Billy Gordon and Rob Pyne, along with Speaker Peter Wellington, the independent who provided the casting vote, had forever etched their names in the Racing Queensland Hall of Shame.

Here is the Butts’ column:

IN his popular column, ‘SILKS & SADDLES,’ published in the NORTH QUEENSLAND REGISTER, respected racing writer, TERRY BUTTS, provides his take on the downfall of champion trainer Peter Moody who confirmed to stable owners yesterday that he was walking away from the industry.

Butts makes some interesting comparisons on penalty for cobalt related offences between what has happened in thoroughbred and harness racing in NSW compared to Victoria.

Racing Queensland also issued a Media Release yesterday confirming that control of Mackay Turf Club had been handed back to the committee.

Here is the Butts’ column:

IN his popular column, ‘SILKS & SADDLES,’ published in the NORTH QUEENSLAND REGISTER, respected racing writer, TERRY BUTTS, reports on a positive meeting between RQ Interim CEO Ian Hall and the Townsville Turf Club committee.

Butts raises the question being asked in the industry whether Mr Hall is planning to try and retain his current RQ role on a full-time basis and how the Interim CEO dodged the issue when asked.

He also makes some interesting observations on why champion trainer Chris Waller was not required to attend the official inquiry which saw his good mate Richard Callander and stable manager Liam Prior disqualified over the sale of a horse to Hong Kong interests.
