Auckland horse trainer Leo Molloy has
been relicensed for the 2013-14 racing
season, but subject to strict conditions, after
being stripped of his licence for abusing
Molloy, originally from Greymouth,
has been training under an interim
trainer s licence while the review of
his licence renewal application was
considered by an independent licensing
panel of Chris McVeigh QC and John
Henderson, appointed by the New Zealand
oroughbred Racing in response to charges
e panel announced yesterday it had
decided to renew Molloy s trainer s licence
but placed conditions on his licence, which
he had agreed to adhere to.
NZTR said it would keep the panel
in place in the meantime to monitor his
adherence to the conditions.
In May, Molloy pleaded guilty
to three representative charges of
misconduct under rule 340 of the
New Zealand Rules of Racing and
was fined $1050 by the Judicial
e charges related to three
insulting and offensive posts placed
on a social media website.
Subsequently, Molloy had left
an inappropriate voice message
on the phone of a racing official
and continued to publish offensive and
unacceptable posts about racing officials on a
social media website.
Molloy has since issued a public apology to
NZTR and its chief executive Greg Purcell.
"Some of my comments have said, or
implied, that you are corrupt, fraudulent or
dishonest. I acknowledge and accept that
is not the case -- I am sorry that I made
these statements and regret any hurt or
distress that this has caused. I am in the
process of withdrawing
them from the website and
have undertaken to stop
making such statements
in the future. I fully and
sincerely apologise to you
for making them," Molloy
said in his apology.
Matthew Goodson said:
"NZTR welcomes robust,
constructive and open
debate and fully supports an individual s
right to comment on matters relating to the
racing industry in New Zealand, however
we will not tolerate offensive or abusive
communications, which have no place in our
When approached for comment today
Molloy would only say: "I would prefer if
the article didn t go to print and if the paper
did run it, the Greymouth Star is toxic ---
everyone can read between the lines".

Should the West
Indies be celebrating
a series-levelling test
cricket victory in a few
days, they will owe a
substantial debt to two
of their older hands.
Without the 200-
run stand between

which revived their first
innings after being sent
in at Seddon Park in
Hamilton yesterday, the
tourists hopes would be

Chanderpaul is a worker of the
ball, a patient man who bided
his time. Ramdin didn t hold
back if he had a chance.
He drove superbly and

Williamson dropped him on 57

Tim Southee, who had dropped
Brathwaite on 13, put him down
