District Turf Handicapping REPLY TO MR. HADDY [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 21 February 1948
District Turf Handicapping REPLY TO MR. HADDY Sir, — As one of the public who sup port racing purely for the interesting sport it provides, I read with mixed feelings the letter written by Mr. Haddy and published in your issue of February 5th. Owners of horses have a duty to the public to give the best' sport possible, aiu! perhaps the greatest influence in this regard is the coopera tion of those interested in horses with the officials appointed by the Western Australian Turf Club and the local clubs. The letter written by Sir. Haddy cannot have the effect of main taining or improving the relations between the parties concerned. While I ani not in a position to judge the merits of this case, or any other regard ing weights given to horses, I do know, and I have no doubt that Mr. Haddy knows, that his dissatisfaction, as expressed in his letter to your paper, could hafe been properly brought before the Northern Districts Racing Associa tion for transmission to the Western Australian...
