    Mick Fitzgerald can’t
    Talk with his crocodile tears mary Theresa mick who’s best mate Henderson ran lami serge last week at 11 on the go since he was 3 on a years break . The horse died talk about been flogged or the countless old horses put over 4 miles in the mud over fences with excessive use of the whip casually ignored . That’s the real issue in racing people choose to ignore

    Im more angry with the guy who put the pic up tbh, Elliots had a moment of madness a few years ago which I doubt he planned for, someones put a camera on him while he was on the phone, I dont think he deserves to have his entire career and life defined by it. Goes without saying that he shouldnt be sitting on a dead horse in any circumstances but in a yard that size its probably quite a common occurrence to have to deal with a dead animal and its likely business as usual. The guy who released the picture has intentionally timed it to damage racing as much as possible and has presumably been sitting on it for years, hes released out of a petty personal issue with Elliot rather than for moral reasons, and hes escaping all the backlash.

    Personally I don't care about the image of racing as its an unwinnable war, there will always be that element who are 100% against it no matter what you do and I wouldn't pander to them in the slightest. In terms of the dark side of this sport we all support, Elliot sitting on a dead horse for a presumably very short time is nowhere near the top of the list with thousands of horses being injected with all sorts to run through injury etc, far less was made about the Byrnes horse sent over hurdles full of elephant tranquillisers, and very little mention of the thousands considered surplus that get slaughtered every year.

    Talk of life bans are beyond absurd when compared to punishments for actual crimes, its pure emotional response and a social media frenzy, hopefully the Irish don't take the bait of the BHA PR stunt.

    Charles Byrnes only got 6 months for doping a horse recently. Which really is animal cruelty and depending on how you view the circumstances worse than what Elliot done. I agree with you Malafets a severe ban and fine is what should be given. The damage he's done to his reputation is enough for me to accept him not getting a life ban.

    How can anyone be more angry with the person that released the photo than the actual culprit in the photo?!?!

    Elliott has been having an affair with a stable girl. KH, Elliotts partner found out and was in an actual fist fight with the lover in a pub belonging to Elliott. (Rumours) video of the incident exists.

    Then a video of Elliott drinking in the bar thats packed, no social distancing etc, plus pubs and bars are to be closed in level 5 restrictions emerge.

    Then the photo of the horse comes out.

    Now Rachel Anne Piggott has tweeted about him twisting her nipples and slapping her arse while she worked for him.

    Sounds to me like hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. I could be wrong.

    Strong rumours tonight Envoi Allen has been moved over to Henry DeBromhead and the rest of Cheveley Park's horses are being taken too.

    If people could post links to their revelations that would be great

    Twitter searches for cattle prods and nipple twisting coming up empty

    Ruby basically said years ago they dont really care when horses die, thats the culture in ireland. Bolger saying there is major drug problem as well, not a level playing field according to him and hes extremely credible.

    As a punter over the years you cant fail to see that the game is riddled with crooks and is corrupt to the core, on the official side as well, and the tv coverage is a gravy train scared to rock the boat, Japan and Hong Kong the only exceptions really but usa and ireland seem worse than most.

    The horse was dead ffs. Can’t believe everyone is so sentimental about a dead animal.

    Elliot was insensitive at worst, there’s no evidence of animal cruelty. Massive overreaction imo.

    I would be far more concerned about rumours that have been coming out for years, about the treatment of live animals in a certain very high profile NH yard in Lambourn.

    That animal was someone’s pride and joy. If you can’t treat an animal with respect in death how can we claim to treat them with respect on life? This sport operates in the court of public opinion, how can we counter the arguments of the antis with pictures and videos like this coming out?

    Utter drivel. If you believe that then you want to get as far away from this sport as you can.

    Reading all that I come to the conclusion that a lot of this is very believable..if Elliott has been in a pub and not giving a toss about social distancing rules then that is also very damaging to him. Shows a lack of respect to laws and is very unprofessional.

    This woman who has come out about the twisting nipples...I mean why would you come out and tweet about this now and why didn't you do something earlier?

    As you say does strike to the hell hath a woman scorned chord but whatever the truth it is all very unsavoury....

    I don't use twitter but these platforms just highlight why you have to be so careful as any twit can put stuff out there..
