THIS web-site continues to listen to what our readers have to say and has introduced a ‘Wednesday Whinge’ where you can express your feelings on racing industry issues of the past week. Try to keep them objective. Just e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

OUR decision to introduce the Wednesday Whinge with snippets of gossip from around the country has been welcomed, especially since something similar was dispensed with when Mark Oberhardt left The Courier-Mail and his Ear column was discontinued. Your response to our new feature ‘The Gossip, The Threats and The Wankers’ has been overwhelming. It also gives us a chance to run some of your e-mails too hot to handle in the mail box in a toned down version that still gets the message across. Spearheading the e-mails this week is a concerning one from a group of owners and trainers in Queensland who have spoken out about integrity in racing or lack of it. Our old mate Godfrey Smith is back – his column will appear again on a monthly basis on this website – and he has turned contributor taking a tongue-in-cheek look at his day at the Kilcoy races. There are a heap of other interesting and far more serious comments on issues from around the country.

IT was a mixed bag in the e-mail box during the past week with comments on the Dan Nikolic sentencing not very complimentary to the top jockey; questions about a grass or synthetic track planned to replace the cushion at Toowoomba and how the Government can justify meeting the cost; comments on Robbie Waterhouse’s quick-fix for the Melbourne Cup; the usual political garbage involving the Queensland racing on and off the track and a back-hander for our good mate Terry Butts following his Silks & Saddles column this week. There continues to be a pleasing reader response to our new feature – The Gossip, the Threats and the Wankers.

IT was a mixed bag in the e-mail box during the past week but one topic that continues to be raised is the deal that Racing Queensland did with the on-course bookmakers. There are calls for it to be explained in more detail and for an audit of where the money will or is being distributed. With confirmation that another Chief Steward is departing North Queensland calls were renewed for the reappointment of Patrick Cooper or for the position to be at least advertised and an independent human resources group appointed to determine the successful candidate on ability not politics. There were a number of other contentious issues raised this week. There has been a pleasing response to our new feature – The Gossip, the Threats and the Wankers – which has become permanent.
