Freedom of the press is something it’s easy to take for granted. At least we get the chance to ignore media stories for ourselves rather than have the decision made for us. However, I’m still not clear on whether these were allegations or proven cases that were covered up.
I notice that the second article states that the original item referred to doping of horses for international races. Does this mean domestic races open to overseas contenders, or races run outside the emirates? Would this be significant, and if so why?
I realise that this is not directly related to the competence of the Ayr executive or the winner of the Lingfield 4.20, but does no-one think that this post is not even worthy of comment in the light of our ‘local’/international issues???
