Apart from what Tony has said, his incredibly tasteless & callous indiscretion has handed the anti-racers a very strong argument for their case on a plate. How can racing say “we only have the animals’ best interests at heart” with a straight face when there’s images like this?

Elliot must know exactly who took this picture - and it must be one very disgruntled ex-employee...

That is pretty shocking !

There's also a level of stupidity in thinking it was ok to photograph and post the incident on social media too, especially from someone who is supposed to be an animal lover, I mean I'm also an animal lover (I think they're delicious) but even I wouldn't have a posed for a photo with a dead animal.

The horse is dead, it longer has any interests?

No idea, but I'm struggling to buy

"...I received a call and, without thinking, I sat down to take it..."


As in, "I received a call and, without thinking, I sat down on a dead horse to take it".

Well this is where it gets murky - rumour is it was a scorned ex-lady friend.

His explanation is obviously bollocks and I agree that it shouldn't go totally unpunished but we seem to live in a world where the slightest lapse in judgement can end someone's career and everyone seems fine with it.

It's the hypocrisy that gets me. Have a look at the MP's expenses scandal for instance. Were any of them ever banned from working?

Full disclosure. I've sat on a dead horse, and I once chased my brother with a calf's tail that came off in my hand while we were helping to move the corpse. That doesn't make me a bad person.

You are not one of the leading NH racehorse trainers though Tom.

Imagine if the horse had died during a race, & whilst awaiting the knacker van the jockey casually sat on the prostrate horse. There'd be uproar.

MP's expenses scandal, were any banned from working? Well a single search on google revealed at least 5 who were sent to Prison, & so effectively banned from working.

We agree there. It was bullshit, & he should get punished. I certainly have not suggested he should be banned full time. A fine, a 3 month or whatever ban, job done.

It's definitely a Gerald Ratner moment for him though.

Got what he had coming imo. Plenty more where this came from. His missus (allegedly) released the photo after catching him giving a stablegirl one.

Then there's this.

I wish I had added "and the horse he rode in on" but it's too late now.
