PETER MOODY RIDES HIS SEESAW
If Australian racing’s underclass had its way they’d declare a national day of mourning to commemorate Pater Moody’s decision to take his bat and ball and leave the oval. The reason for his “hissy fit”, it appears from reading the many interviews and opinion pieces, was two-fold – he found it difficult to comply with the transitional arrangements for his caretaker trainer of choice David Brideoake to move into his stables, and, perhaps, Brideoake himself may have baulked at the inconveniences and challenges presented in the interim arrangements.
A combination of fatigue and the difficulty in copping the umpire’s decision combined to make the about- face a fait accompli. His vapid press conference, which, supposedly, was intended to shed some sort of light into his about-face to quit racing, gave the impression that he had lapsed back into the Peter Moody of old.
