I'm not a Drape or PETA fan, but I'm a little tired of people in horse racing (or in politics for that matter) attacking the messenger rather than addressing the message. It's time for a little sunlight in racing. If, as TGJB has suggested on numerous occasions, all test results were published, and there was a spate of jimson-weed-related positives, it would have been obvious, the CHRB would (one hopes) have addressed it promptly, and this whole situation would have been avoided. Alan Foreman on Steve Byk's show kept going on about the need for confidentiality. No! You are asking for slots and other subsidies for your sport and for the public to bet on it. There is a requirement for openness that goes with that.
