Muhtiman created the topic: Horse was a ghost
This was copied from the minutes of the recent NHRA AGM

Proposal made by Mr Paul Karam

Mr Karam queried the horse identification system. He advised that his 3 year old
gelding TRIBAL FORCE had passed away in a freak accident. He had
requested that DNA be taken from the euthanased horse and sent through to
Onderstepoort, who had advised the NHA that there was no match on the data
base of the DNA. He said that he had eventually received a letter from Dr Cindy
Harper saying that there was no previous DNA from TRIBAL FORCE and there
was no comparison, which had confirmed his suspicions that the horse was a
ghost. He confirmed that Prof Guthrie had then spoken to him and after long
explanations, he had advised him how this worked. Mr Karam said that it had
taken Prof Guthrie more than three months to confirm that a DNA test was taken
from the blood of the horse when it was microchipped and showed it was a
The Chief Executive confirmed with Mr Karam that he was looking into the
integrity aspect of the foal registration process and that the physical horse was
the real horse. He said that there was a process and advised that it was not
flawless. He added that the confirmation was based on a manual confirmation.
He advised that the ultimate was the DNA testing.

Mr Karam raised the issue of Mr Spies being insolvent and training. He said that
the NHA had failed to do due diligence.

The Chief Executive was advised that there had been a full investigation.

Mr Karam advised that he was not aware of the investigation.

My idea of "help from above" is a sniper on the roof
and a higher power is a hell fire missile armed drone.
