I very much love horse racing. Recently I have read and listened with media industry people and commentators criticizing for Racing Victoria's stewards. their handling of the Melbourne Cup race-day treatments of the Gai Water house trained Tres Blue and the Mikel Delzangles trained Dunaden. Unfortunately there were comments comparing it to the fresh race from Paul Beshara-Happy Trails case. suggesting both Cup horses should have been scratched and the trainers penalized like Beshara, claiming a rule for one should be a rule for all. Simply commentary was worst and absurd . In the Beshara case, Happy Trails was not allowed to race at Moonee Valley. At a subsequent inquiry Beshara was found guilty of race-day treatment to Happy Trails and disqualified for six months. He should disqualified for long time.
