The expression scot free derives from a medieval municipal tax levied in proportional shares on inhabitants, often for poor relief. This tax was called a scot, as an abbreviation of the full term scot and lot, where scot was the sum to be paid and lot was one's allotted share.24 Oct 1998

The only conclusion that can be arrived at in terms of this thread is that the BHA are not fit for purpose!! Other reasonable assumptions are that you would not want a group of "peers" from this Forum as a jury at a trial if you were White,Male and Hetero as the accused.

That is not to say that the whole thread is so biased but obvious enough the protagonists who attend LGBTV+ and all lives matter unless you happen to be Male,White and Hetero are on this Forum.

Becoming a minority whilst a majority in terms of actual numbers being reflected it appears as life in England..........For BHA sub BBC and most media?

Simple fact is if Frost's first name was Barry,Brian or Bob this farce would have ended without official interference and the whole sport would be getting on with entertaining those who are interested in it?

Bryony Frost was an exemplar to the sport today. What some scarred ripe old cheeses describe as an act is her natural sunny temperament. She has not changed:- still willing on stop on the way to weigh in in to take the knee, set sown her saddle and cheerfully sign a programme or pose with a random racegoer. Was the same on her way out of the racetrack - she is so popular that her way way halted several times by admirers but she made time for all.

Wonderful character.

By Richard Forristal, Ireland editor
UPDATED 6:19PM, OCT 27 2021
As a former jump jockey who has long since given up on the search for a sanctuary to match the refuge of the weighing room, it has been deeply upsetting to see that inner sanctum turned on itself so publicly.

Most distressing is the manner in which that space is being portrayed as inherently misogynistic and threatening. In the Sunday Times the last two weeks, David Walsh has conveyed how a BHA report into Bryony Frost’s complaints against Robbie Dunne concludes that “there is a cultural issue in which threatening behaviour is condoned and not reported”.

It’s 18 years since I lived in that space, but such a depiction couldn’t be further from what I experienced. Sure, it was a demanding environment in which you were held to account for your actions, but it was safe and respectful and everyone in there kept an eye on each other.

Disputes were inevitable and bridges had to be built, but that is the very foundation of the weighing room’s camaraderie – you won’t forge the same deep bonds in a chess club. There is nowhere else like it, and female jockeys are an intrinsic part of the fabric.

I went in there as a 16-year-old with no background in the game, yet never felt threatened. If you did something stupid, you got a dressing down and you soon learned about the boundaries.

It is an intense professional sporting environment, so by definition it is going to be intimidating at times. That’s the whole point of sport; you can’t sanitise every aspect of life and you learn when to take your medicine and when to stand your ground.

As the father of a young girl who is determined to be a jockey, there are many reasons why I would prefer if she pursued some other profession, but the weighing room not being a healthy place for her is not one of them.

When I was riding, apart from when they had to sort their gear, many of the female jockeys came into our section because they wanted to be in there. They enjoyed the craic and gave as good as they got.

Robbie Dunne: accused of using abusive language
Robbie Dunne: accused of using abusive language
Edward Whitaker
Everyone would sit on the benches or in the tea room together and whether you were a man or woman didn’t matter a damn. You all faced the same treacherous daily hazards.
Were they exposed to naked flesh? Yes, that would have been unavoidable at times, but I don’t recall anyone being disrespectful in the way that Dunne is reported to have been towards Frost. You put your towel on and everyone went about their business.

Maybe it’s something modern sensibilities can’t cope with, but there wasn’t a remotely sexual or aggressive undertone and it meant the female jockeys weren’t isolated or made to feel excluded.

What is so galling about this whole episode is the manner in which these positive aspects of life in the weighing room are being turned on it negatively. Men and women sharing the same space is now something crude; the necessary self-regulating aspect is now being weaponised as a menacing hierarchy, and the solidarity in there is now viewed as unaccepting of someone a bit different.

All of this because of a leaked BHA report whose author Chris Watts, the former head of integrity, has recently departed the authority in mysterious circumstances. The whole investigation has a shambolic look to it, and I doubt very much Frost would endorse how the weighing room at large has been depicted.

Frost clearly believes she has been bullied by Dunne, and let’s be very clear – as well as his alleged nude insolence – some of the abusive language Frost has accused Dunne of using is vile. Dunne apparently denies using the worst of the obscenities.

Bryony Frost: believes she has been bullied
Bryony Frost: believes she has been bullied
Edward Whitaker (
The root of it all seems to be that Dunne was incensed with Frost for not riding with due care and caution. The Sunday Times articles indicate there was nothing untoward in two specified incidents at Stratford and Southwell, and that the stewards endorsed that view.

However, stewards’ ineffective regulating of interference is well established and it is naive to just accept nothing occurred to provoke what followed.

At Stratford, Frost’s mount Wisecracker fleetingly cut across Dunne’s horse Cillian’s Well turning away from the home straight the final time. At Southwell, Wisecracker ran down the fence in front of Cillian’s Well, who fell and suffered a fatal injury.

That’s not to say Frost was to blame, and it certainly doesn’t justify or excuse the foul language Dunne is alleged to have used, but it’s disingenuous to suggest there weren’t racing incidents that triggered the disputes.

What we don’t know was if these were isolated incidents and Dunne was guilty of grossly overreacting because of personal animosities, or if others had expressed similar frustrations to Frost about her mounts drifting across others.

In Sunday’s article, headlined ‘Silence of the Weighing Room’, Walsh stated that Frost listed the names of five other female jockeys who had also been on the receiving end of Dunne’s crude tongue.

Lilly Pinchin, Millie Wonnacott, Gina Andrews and Page Fuller were presented as active riders whose subsequent benign testimony was evidence of this ‘code of silence’. The fifth rider, Hannah Welch, was depicted as having been freed from such shackles because she no longer rides and stated as much herself.

Welch, whose 60 rides under National Hunt rules included nine for Frost’s father Jimmy, offered corroborating evidence against Dunne of a 2018 incident which he either recalled differently or didn’t recall at all.

All told, it smacks of a deeply unsatisfactory report, and the fear is that the inquiry into a genuinely held complaint by Frost has been compromised, because the aspects of the BHA report that have been divulged suggest a hopelessly jaundiced view of weighing room.

Moreover, the investigation may have been undermined regardless of whether or not the storm blew up in public.

According to sources, a number of the jockeys and valets who gave statements believed that their comments were transcribed inaccurately, and some refused to sign off on them for that reason.

That would suggest that the entire process has been flawed, and it might also shed some light on why the Professional Jockeys Association was compelled this week to ask the BHA "to bring the matter to an end".

Sadly, that ostensibly curious intervention might not be as inexplicable as it first seemed.
Report Gordon63 October 28, 2021 12:08 PM BST
Mr Forristal paints a picture, albeit one from 18 years ago, of a harmonious workplace however the world (but perhaps not the weighing room - tbd) has moved on significantly and what was seen (probably often incorrectly) as banter can easily fall into the category of misogyny. And yes I'm white, male and in late 50s however I've had a mum, sister and nieces and their lived experiences influence my views to a large degree and even outwith the family, the revelations of #metoo, increase (at least in reporting but anecdotally also in occurrences) of domestic abuse, in many cases leading to significant physical harm and murder, the sarah everard case (and unfortunately many others) clearly demonstrate that us males have a problem, one of which I was likely guilty myself in my earlier years.   

I've consistently stated on here and elsewhere that BHA focus on diversity/inclusivity has diverted (sic) them from some far more immediate and pressing issues impacting racing and which they've consistently failed to address and now it seems that they can't even get their flagship policy under the faintest level of control and integrity - if any of the BHA executives had any shame, they'd resign but we live in a world where Dido Harding gets shifted from one failure to another, picking up £1000s of taxpayers money as she goes, so unfortunately it ain't going to happen.

I get that Bryony irritates many due to the fawning nature of coverage (particularly from those fools at ITV racing) however as a founding member of the Rachael Blackmore appreciation society, I'm all for female riders in the sport, as they have been in the 40+ years of my involvement.  Should they be expected to put up with behaviour which in other workplaces would result in censure and disciplinary action, no way and yes 'danger' in the profession could be a mitigating factor but we've had servicewomen in Iraq and Afghanistan these past 20 years and bullying/overtly sexual behaviour etc are not tolerated (or at least not supposed to be!) there either.

I have no idea what happened in this particular case and other than what has been leaked, no one else here on the forum does either, so I'm certainly not going to jump to conclusions but I certainly take issue with PJA requesting that the case be closed with no further action taken as that clearly demonstrates bias in favour of one of their members over another and that must be challenged.  The BHA inadequacies in pursuing the investigation and the farcical length of time to bring the case for review cannot and should not be allowed to colour what is a very important issue and one which should concern all of us.

Making mountains out of molehills, massaging and exaggerating the detail, and the banging of drums by those who have a feminist agenda to drive, have jumped on this as this is what they and others with similar causes what springs to my mind.
In the absence of actual numbers, I will guess that the answers to my 2 questions is a good few and none....a job for his legal team maybe to get exact figures.
How many times for example have words to the effect of..."you try and come up my inside again like that and next time I'll put you over the rails you c...t", been said in the changing room over the years do you think?...I suspect a fair amount, along with similar, for actual or perceived dangerous moves a jockey can make in a race.
Much more likely that the offender would apologise for their actions and learn from the experience, than the jockey who has thrown a few swear words and threats in, especially if they didn't seem to get the point or argue the toss, I would have thought.....or it just turned into a punch up.(Btw...every man cannot beat a woman in a punch up)....don't forget the buzz words "sexual equality"....which should apply all the time and not just when it suits.

Maybe the delay is simply down to the fact that the BHA have found it difficult to get the allegations substantiated by other jockeys/valets rather than anything to do with incompetence and they are now caught between a rock and a hard place....we think this is a storm in a tea cup but how do we get the "correct" message across in our findings?
As the saying goes...actions speak louder than words..and there have been no "actions" in this case despite opportunities over the years...BF probably had no intention of it coming to this and RD should certainly not be hung out to dry.... imo.

The leaked report also includes claims from Frost that ill-feeling between her and Dunne stretches back to before 2017 when Frost was still riding as an amateur jockey. She claimed: ‘I recall being in the men’s changing room and he would stand in front of me naked. I didn’t want this and none of the other jockeys were like that.

known as python dunne down his local.

So it all gets sorted next Tuesday? Dunne apologises for the abuse, Frost accepts the apology, Dunne is warned about his future conduct, and we all go home to watch BF boot in more winners. Could have been sorted the day after the complaint went in. BHA are bonkers.

not sure it's that simple, they have named the rules he's supposedly broken, it's not a quick 5 mins job it could take days

I actually hope Dunne gets the book thrown at him, but it should have been sorted out at the time.
Report elise November 23, 2021 5:57 PM GMT
agree it should have, as you say a few apologies and it would have never seen the media circus it is now, my bet is they waste a few days, deliberate some more then say not enough evidence watch your future conduct

You are probably right. But it must still be stressful for both jockeys involved and needs closing satisfactorily now that the media are so interested.

"none of the other jockeys did that"!
None of the other jockeys allow their horses to veer any any they want when thy approach fences!
These women should understand that if they want to be with the men they should accept and expect man behaviour.  I've been in hundreds and hundreds of dressing rooms in my life, and the jockeys room is effectively that, and men will stand around, naked.  Whether undressing or dressing.  It is the BHA she should be going for, who have signally failed, at almost every racecourse, to provided adequate facilities for these females!!!
This is one b itch and I am convinced she is going out of her way to make a mess of this poor guy's life and career.

I read somewhere - on here I think - that an announcement would be mad on the the outcome of this enquiry this week.  Anyone?  Can';t see this going any other way than Dunne being scandalously vilified  and his career suffering as a result of the racing establishment running scared of ( and caving into ) future attack and savaging from the female lobby to overcome, bully and control the "patriarchal establishment".
Modern day women have gone way, way past wanting equality and equal opportunity, they now want absolute control!  Beware everyone, and get the mice ready!

In fact Diana Dors in this episode sums it up well.
