RACING IS GREAT LEVELLER. PURSUIT OF INFORMATION SHOWS WEAK SPOTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 2 May 1930

RACING IS GREAT LEVELLER. PURSUIT OF INFORMATION SHOWS WEAK SPOTS. There is no uoubt as to racing be ing a great leveller. It brings out the weak points of many of its' suppor- ters, and causes one to regret that, in the desire to make a winning bet, there is so often an entire loss of dig nity. One cannot help smiling cynically and thinking. How cheap they are, when one sees people who, as a rule, are obsessed with their own import ance, canvassing trainers, jockeys, / stable boys — in fact, anyone — irifc the hope of gleaning information^ ?that will put them on a winner. ' On racecourses you see social lights playing up to individuals they would scarcely wish to recognise elsewhere. It would be amusing if it were not rather nauseating. Incidentally, crooks drift together in racing, no matter how gre'at the difference in their social standing The man who first discovered it was a good idea to judge people by the company to which they leaned was certainly a keen observer.
