    Does anyone know what has happened to the Doncaster Horse trainer Vicky Haigh, she seems to have disappeared off the scene. I know there were some problems for her at Ascot but nothing has been heard off her since??? Any ideas

    <br>Two yearling colts were knocked down to Miss V Haigh at the Goffs Sales this week, priced at 26,000 and 27,000 euros.

    There was also a piece in a gossip column somewhere earlier this month which claimed she was working behind the bar of a Doncaster hotel during the Leger meeting.

    I’d forgotten her antics with the syringe, but she’s clearly something of a mentalist. Whether than merits a 3-year jail sentence is another matter, and not one I’m qualified to comment on.

    I remember she was a really tasty filly when she was a young jockey all those years ago. She used her beauty to good effect to get a sponsorship deal, I seem to remember.
    She became a bit of an ambassador for women jockeys and trainers in Yorkshire. It’s a sad day that her life has gone so horribly wrong but it sounds like she has used some very underhand tactics in fighting her side of the argument.
    I’m sure she will win her appeal and get the prison sentence overturned or reduced. It seems excessive but Judge Peter Kelson QC, a new judge, is already well known for his harsh sentencing at Sheffield Crown Court.

    The Earl of Hunting

    t

    on [sic] referred to is presumably former trainer Willie Hastings-Bass. Thought he’d upped and gone to Australia years ago :?:

    I cannot imagine anything more evil than to falsely accuse someone of what she accused her ex-partner. Even though her sentence appears to be for other breaches of the law, she deserves no sympathy.

    …which, for them as may have missed it, are summarised here:

    Hope Ms Haigh never gets a job with horses or husbands again.

    She should spend exactly the same time in prison as her ex-husband would have been expected to if the false charges she was trying to pin on him had of stuck, in my opinion.

    With some more added on for good measure – an evil woman

    Clearly she was desperate to hang on to her daughter, and her reaction was that of a desperate woman. Does anyone really think there’s any worse punishment than being separated from her own child, or that they might not have done similar in the same circumstances?
