So basically you own a dog at Romford, the management run the F*ck out of it, you're bang out of order if you fancy it and try and have a good bet on it.

Summary.. The track abuse your property
          You can't gamble it to win anything half decent
          So you hope and prey that your dog doesn't pick up a bad injury (your expense)
          So basically you hope your dog stays sound and covers the kennel bill

Romford are due to release a statement concerning the departure of trainer Jim Reynolds. We understand that his departure follows an alleged time-finding incident on Airport Glider at Romford on Saturday. The puppy returned at 4-1 when winning an A5 race in 24.23, four days after recording 24.97 in a solo trial. All Reynolds’ runners have been taken off tonight’s card.

Coral Statement

“We have today terminated Mr Reynolds’ contract as a Romford trainer with immediate effect as we deem that Mr Reynolds has brought the integrity of the sport and the track into question. The integrity of the sport is of paramount importance, in order for owners and trainers to operate on a fair and level playing field, and for punters to have total confidence in the sport as a betting medium. Mr Reynolds was warned as to his future conduct at a meeting with track officials last month, and there are two further enquiries pending, which relate to incidents involving Mr Reynolds’ dogs, bringing the total to four in a nine month period.”

“We are not ruling out bringing in another trainer to replace Mr Reynolds in the future, but we are satisfied that the current number of dogs will meet upcoming racing requirements.”

Finding .80 off trial is 10 lengths, I would regard that as excessive.

It is not the sort of thing a punter would expect.

Jim Reynold's has been very silly if he has been playing games. He has just lost a very good contract.

He had already been warned.

If the 2nd in race improved .40 it could be the going was much faster than shown.

That would mean JR's dog found only found 5 lengths, not as bad.

I don't know?

As a punter I have some sympathy with Starship's view.

I believe there was a number of races involved. I think we need to know of all the evidence they have supposedly listed against him. Having said that if it involves any time finding from lightly raced pups then that should be discounted.

Did the racing manager or whoever was grading this dog not take any of this into account? The answer is clearly no so why did they not? The other example I put up a dog going off 3/1 to win the Derby Plate gets put in an A6 3 months later. Just because said racing managers don't have the time or are lazy bollox's means the trainer / owners should not take advantage of a lenient grade?
The simple fact is supposedly the took a few quid off the bookmakers and they're spitting the dummy out, had the dog been beaten a short head in the same time it's a million he would have got the bullet.

Did you really think that a person employed by a bookmaker sponsored channel would read out the email?

As well as bookmaker owned tracks we still have the ultimate enemy of greyhound racing, the GRA, still involved in it's destruction of the sport. And the GRA  have been doing this for more than 40 years. I haven't forgot what they did to Clapton which prior to their ownership was turning out Derby winners every other year and the strongest betting market in the country.

Yes I remember Clapton Sparrow, it did have some very good quality dogs

Greyhound racing has been woefully abused or abused itself....

I remember Greyhounds tracks all over London, wonderful daysHappy consigned to history nowSad

Did Romford/Corals not have previous for this with regard to Paddy Coughlan (Greenfield Madam trainer) getting his books along with racing manager at the time for a similar incident?

The double standards in the sport at the moment will surely kill it - vile companies encouraging unfortunate people to ruin their lives by ploughing all their money into machines in their shops, yet when anyone tries anything against them (and I'm not saying Jim has) they cry foul!

The sport if it's going to survive needs a complete overhaul and a mass clear out - sadly it's not going to happen and it's not going to last beyond the medium term.

The GBGB have not got any long term plans for the sport, They don't even know were the Greyhound Derby will be run, if or when Wimbledon closes. The sport is run by a load of idiots who can't look no more then a few month in front. What are they doing to help get new young trainers started up, are they going to wait until we get to the point were most of the present day trainers have gone to that dog track in the sky then do something. Who have they got in charge of getting new sponsors in to the sport?

Just read in todays  racing Post that the Wolverhampton branch of the RGT are seeking a new site. The kennel owner from which it now operates from is selling her home and kennels. Why can't the GBGB fund the purchase of the house and kennels,It would be an asset that holds value, not like GIVING money to a track to build an extension onto their restaurant. Like I said GBGB is run by a load of IDIOTS.
