After the last at Bunbury last night now deserves a discussion of its own.
Chris Voak fined $1000.00.
Don’t think I have ever seen a fine this large handed out to a reinsperson.
Would have been a heated discussion no doubt.
If stewards are following directions given to them they must be frustrated too.
Whoever came up with this has now got themselves in a corner big time.
Stupid rule, impossible to control.
Watched the races yesterday, they belt the shit out of them but I guess that’s ok there the races.
Combined with slow lead times to me it just revenue raising.
Would like to know the total of fines combined in last few months.

    $1000 is ridiculous in trots that’s 4 country winners worth of % they can’t expect people that make a living off driving to be paying 4 wins worth of money in one fine

    Voak was fined 1,000 march 2016 collie , when a high ranking union official who approached the stewards in disgust with the use of his whip. His been a repeat offender on numerous occassions , 
    You can't defend the indefenisble.

    But his friday night and last night fines, can't see them been warranted,unless the rules have been changed lately excuse my ignorance, on that.---- if thats case you will be only allowed to blow them a kiss. shortly.

    Spinking have a look at Chris Voak last night and have a look at the whip action of the first 4 in the Railway or any other race meeting.
    Then you will see what I am referring to.
    If you can’t see a difference in the force applied to racehorses Vs trotters then you must be blind.
