No live broadcasts from More Joyous inquiry
02 May 2013 | Racing NSW has declined requests to televise the high-profile More Joyous stewards' inquiry on Monday.
Broadcast networks had made applications to Racing NSW to attend the inquiry which will have the high profile racing participants of trainer Gai Waterhouse, her bookmaker son Tom and owner and breeder John Singelton.
They have been requested to attend by Racing NSW stewards as they reopen their inquiry from last Saturday evening at Randwick over remarks Singleton made on live broadcasts about his mare More Joyous after the running of the Group 1 All Aged Stakes.
The inquiry now spans comments from former rugby league player Andrew Johns and what he head in a conversation with Tom Waterhouse and former jockey Alan Robinson and what he may have told Singleton about the John's conversation.
Tome Waterhouse has denied saying that More Joyous could not win.
Singleton has taken his horses away from Gai Waterhouse's stables after last Saturday's racing.
Racing NSW chief executive Peter V'landys said it was not in the best interests of anyone concerned to make an exception.
"It is a normal stewards' inquiry and it's not appropriate for it to be filmed," said V'landys.
"We had a number of TV stations wanting to do live coverage but it is a serious inquiry and we want to concentrate on that," he said.
