Brouhaha builds over ham-fisted stewards merger plan
Ever since NSW Racing Minister, George Souris, let one rip last Wednesday people have been looking around asking "who farted?". Now Craig Young in the SMH has dropped another bombshell, the Chairman of Stewards, "Ray Murrihy wasn't even consulted about the decision" to merge the stipendiary stewards of horse racing with harness racing. Souris appears to have convinced the board heads of each code to sign up but with precious little consultation with anyone else.
