‘Disgusting’ – Taunton racecourse forced to delete ‘awful’ Bryony Frost article after fierce Twitter backlash

, ‘Disgusting’ – Taunton racecourse forced to delete ‘awful’ Bryony Frost article after fierce Twitter backlash

A ‘DIGUSTING’ article which patronisingly branded top jockey Bryony Frost as ‘monosyllabic’ has been blasted by racing fans.

Taunton racecourse was forced to delete the ‘awful’ story after a fierce online backlash.

Frost was mocked for her ‘gushy, monosyllabic’ interviews in an article published on Taunton racecourse’s official website

The article was published on Tuesday evening but had been deleted by Wednesday morning

A tweet put out promoting the article originally included a photo of Robbie Dunne, the male jockey who was banned for bullying and harassing Frost.

Under the title ‘Frodon and Frost – a match made in heaven’, the article labelled the trailblazing rider ‘monosyllabic’.

It also mocked her ‘gushy’ post-race interviews of which it bizarrely claimed ‘her peers may not approve’.

Frost, 27, told Sun Racing the enormous difficulty she faced in reporting the ‘reprehensible and disgraceful’ behaviour Dunne subjected her to.

He was banned for ten months – cut from the original 18 on appeal – after threatening to put Frost through the wing of a fence.

The article, which did not have a byline, was quickly picked up by racing followers on Twitter.

In response to the story, one person wrote: “Disgusting. There are no words.”

Another said: “I sincerely hope @TauntonRacing will issue a statement of sincere apology and explanation, and remove the article from their website.

“I am completely flabbergasted by this.”

One Twitter user wrote: “It’s an awful article which seems to have an agenda.”

Another comment read: “Patronising piece.”

While a fellow racing follower wrote: “Have just read it. Wow! Whoever penned it and whoever approved its publication needs to apologise or resign.”

Taunton racecourse has apologised to Frost and Dunne for the article and banned the author from writing for them again.

Sun Racing columnist Frost and the Paul Nicholls-trained Frodon won the Grade 3 Badger Beer Chase at Wincanton earlier this month.

The dream duo, who previously won the King George and Ryanair, are one of racing’s most popular and successful partnerships.

Frost, daughter of Grand National-winning rider Jimmy, has won 12 of 87 career races at Somerset track Taunton.

And this year she claimed the racecourse’s feature Portman Cup for the third straight season aboard Yala Enki.
