Struthers pledges full support of PJA for Dwyer 

By David Baxter
PAUL STRUTHERS on Tuesday pledged that the Professional Jockeys Association will lend its full support in helping Martin Dwyer to appeal his eight-month ban imposed by the Royal Western India Turf Club. (44 hours ago)More
    Graham Green brings us news:
    "Dwyer speaks of family anguish as he vows
    to fight ban all the way. "
    Pic of Martin, who said: "I've done nothing wrong" , and (inset) a Newmarket stable lad shows his support on Twitter.
    "MARTIN DWYER yesterday spoke of his family's anguish over the eight-month ban imposed by the Royal Western India Turf Club that has turned the love affair he previously enjoyed with the sub-continent into a nightmare.
    "If he is unable to overturn the punishment on appeal, the Derby winning-jockey faces the prospect of finding himself sidelined from August 31 to April 30, 2014, unless he can reciprocate the suspension.
    "I've had this hanging over me for most of the year and this is another setback, "  said Dwyer, who was still awaiting notification of the inquiry findings.
    "It's hard mentally but I've just got to be strong, carry on and be positive because at the end of the day I've done nothing wrong. I'm going to fight it all the way and I've got to try to have some faith in the appeal board, which is the next step.
    "My wife is upset by everything and it's hard to deal with, but I just have to keep going forward. I'm very grateful for the support people have shown me. "
    "Confusion still surrounds Monday's decision of the Mumbai stewards to increase Dwyer's ban from 56 days, although at the original inquiry in March three of the panel members did take the view that "the suspension awarded in this case was inadequate".
    "Dwyer was deemed guilty of preventing Ice Age running on her merits at Mahalaxmi on February 17, despite the 6-4 favourite veering violently close home and having to be snatched up after colliding with the runner-up. The filly was subsequently found to have bled.
    "Dwyer chose not to travel to India as the inquiry had already been adjourned a number of times and there was no certainty it would take place after being postponed at two hours' notice last week. He was also reluctant to leave home because wife Claire is recovering from major surgery.
    "I don't believe it would have made any difference if I'd gone because I've kept saying the same thing, and given the same evidence, since it happened, " Dwyer said.
    "I've emailed the RWITC today, telling them I want to appeal against the decision. I still haven't received any notification from them about the inquiry, although I know this can take a day or two.
    "I plan to go to the appeal but don't know when that will be. I've been told it won't happen overnight and could be in three to four weeks. "
    "Dwyer's plight has sent shockwaves through the racing community, with Professional Jockeys Association chief Paul Struthers leading the calls for the BHA not to reciprocate the ban, should the appeal fail.
    "Dwyer said: "I've spoken to a solicitor through the PJA in regard to setting things up to apply to the BHA not to reciprocate , if it comes to that, but before that I've been told I must exhaust all possible avenues in India. That's what I'll be doing."
    J Margaret Clarke Turfcall Comment
    "What about the filly ICE AGE where does she figure in all this? A jockey can't compete in a race, any race without a horse. What has happened to ICE AGE since that race on 17 February? Where has she been since, and where is ICE AGE now? Did she receive any veterinary support medication treatement following this race on 17 February? As we are able to place bets on racehorses, are we allowed to inquire into their wellbeing if found to be having a bad day?
     Time to call in  Indipendant Team Monty Roberts or Team Gary Witherford  the men who listens to horses  to clarify ICE AGE side in all this, as to why ICE AGE was unable to perform as well as usual this day.
     Monty Roberts an independant horseman.
    Gary Witherford an independant horseman.
    Are any of us allowed to inquire about the health of the filly ICE AGE since, and now?
    This  ICE AGE-MARTIN DWYER focus shows just how dangerous a place Global Horseracing is in at present. To venture out to compete as both Martin Dwyer and Richard Hughes before him have bravely attempted.  Fraught with bloodhorse illiterate hazards as there are absolutely No Recognised True Rules Of Global Horseracing at present.  Horseracing Turf Clubs around the world, have scant knowledge as to the rights and the needs of racehorses in training, or the people who work with racehorses every day.  A top sport as Global Horseracing without True Rules a disaster zone. As this ICE AGE-MARTIN DWYER performance shows.
    The one interesting fact to come out of this horrific injustice is that the language of the horse remains to be the same no matter in what country. It is the language of the peoples that change,  muddle and confuse, as in Lip Service.


    Steve Dennis brings us further facts on Martin Dwyer's plight this morning in the Racing Post.
    Steve's message to the BHA " An easy solution to Dwyer saga: don't apply ban.  It would be a strategy without precedence but a precedent must be set' .


    Steve points out that "The long arm of the Royal Western India Turf Club has a global reach, meaning the BHA  is expected to endorse and imply the ban in Britain in practice.


    The BHA stewards together with the Indian Stewards RWITC are burdening  Dwyer's daily workload, provoking a spiteful,  unsettling, unfair environmental advantage, on his already punishing daily work schedule.


    Dwyer, a young gentleman who has followed his career path from day one giving his best throughout his creative honest endeavour within his 'Equus Zone Intelligence' . The trouble here is that the BHA stewards together with the Indian Stewards RWITC have no 'Equus Zone Intelligence' of their own.


    To traumatize and sacrifice someone else's career life and times is an evil unacceptable practice a disgusting corrupt act with attitude. No one has the right to behave as this to other people.  The British Legal Justice System need to clarify their focus on corrupt acts as these found going on in the present unjust British horseracing law.


    A British law that is taking an unsettling unfair advantage, messing with other peoples careers, ignoring their achievements and  acting with other global horseracing countries to trash other peoples careers and take away their livelihood due to the fact they are unable to recognise for themselves another persons skills.
