Ill Robinson Will Not Attend More Joyous Inquiry

Bookmark and Share

Thursday, 2 May 2013: Former larrikin jockey Allan Robinson is medically unfit to attend a stewards' inquiry into a dispute between John Singleton and trainer Gai Waterhouse according to a lawyer acting for the former rider.

High-profile lawyer Chris Murphy said via Twitter on Thursday that Robinson would be a no-show at Monday's hearing.

He says Robinson's health is still suffering after a race fall at Cessnock in July 2010 in which he broke his back and suffered bleeding to his brain.

The fall ended his riding career. He is now an elected member of the Newcastle City Council, having won a seat on the council last year.

"Alan (sic) will not be going to the More Joyous inquiry," Murphy tweeted.

"He is in no position to endure the stress. He pushed himself to undergo the Today Tonight interview to tell of his simple role in the More Joyous investigation.

"Without going into his health issues I can assure you he is not up to the task in his current condition."

Robinson made a phone call to Singleton over information he had heard relating to the fitness of More Joyous before her defeat in the All Aged Stakes at Randwick last Saturday.

Because he is no longer a licensed person with Racing NSW, Robinson does not have to appear before stewards on Monday.

Singleton subsequently accused Waterhouse's son, bookmaker Tom Waterhouse, of telling people the champion mare could not win the Group One race and sacked Gai Waterhouse as his trainer.

Robinson spoke of his role in the drama on Channel Seven's Today Tonight program on Wednesday and said he was "horrified" by the public fallout between Singleton and Gai Waterhouse.

Tom Waterhouse has denied the accusations.

World War 3 broke out and North Korea dropped a nuclear bomb on Seoul, but you had to go to page 7 in the Daily Telegraph to read about it as the Singo/Gai show has been the most earth-shattering occurrence in the last week apparently. I loved the way when, short of any new angles, they trotted out J Schreck for a double page comment piece about the significanced of conflict of interests. Isn''t this the same guy about whom it has been written was consorting with the leading Sydney jockey''s wife when he was chief steward? And owner P Horwitz warned about the elephant in the room, i.e. the supposedly incompatible relationship between trainer and bookmaker husband/son. Isn''t this the same guy who happily had horses in the Waterhouse stable for 15 years and which won millions in prizemoney? Fair dinkum, the standard of journalism has hit an all-time low. ”

Farce is about the only description for this drama.
if bloodworks have treatment required for injury and possible infection, within hours of a Race, the Stewards and the Public have a right to know.

According to a Sunday newpsaper report, Robbo wasn''t paid a cent for his TT interview. ”

Very good question , John B.
The contradictions of TV interviews and Statements put forward stand out like a red dress at a Funeral.
I would love to see the " Money Trail " of Toms day .
Robbo not appearing is not a good sign as he holds an elected Council position.
That tells me he has been functioning to this point.
Very Interesting case.

Was Allan Robinson paid to appear on Today Tonight? ”

Might be an opportunity for this case to rely on a medical reason for someone to have relayed unreliable info.
The old "not guilty " on the grounds of ? ”
