I can’t be the only one feeling a sense of unease at the moment with the emerging drugs related stories in racing and I can’t be the only one who thinks that the whole racing world could implode at any moment. There are only so many times such activities can be brushed under the carpet. Lone operators do exist but there appears to be rather too many “loners” being discovered/exposed to deny there is a underlying problem somewhere along the line.
So what are the solutions? Well, if there is a drugs problem in racing people shouldn’t just imply there is but they should set about to prove it. Good investigative journalism is the key. If people are concerned enough about the tarnished reputation of the great sport of racing they should jump off that cozy gravy train and give the lone guy in the boat a hand in rocking it.
