Queensland TBA At Odds With Queensland Racing Limited
Meanwhile, chairman of Thoroughbred Breeders Queensland, Bob Frappell, has issued a media release stating that the State breeding body he represents does not agree with last Friday's announcement by Queensland Racing Limited in relation to a possible Class Action against the Federal Government related to the outbreak of EI. Frappell commented: "I find this very disappointing given the financial hardship caused to breeders and I will be pursing our options. The TBA (federal body) of breeders has given instructions to a law firm to give us a legal opinion of the likely success of pursuing a class action. I will distribute the opinion as soon as it is available and the TBQA Committee will discuss the issues as length. At that time we will let members know of the action we recommend in the industries best interests."
