    RESIDENCE of Globe Derby are feeling less than comfortable after another stable crime was committed last night.

    Two evenings ago a “dirty low scoundrel” broke into veteran trainer Donald Thomas’ property, stealing the horseman’s work and race gear.

    As a result of the theft, the 85-year-old had to scratch his runner – Sheseversoclever – from the opening event at the Globe Derby meeting that afternoon.

    Thomas’ grandson, Declan Whelan, who was set to drive the mare, was understandably vocal in his opinion the perpetrator.

    “I don’t want to believe it, but it is the world we live in,” Whelan said. “No one deserves this, but you certainly don’t do anything like that to old people.

    “Pop is pretty upset, we all are to be honest, but Nan is also very shaken, knowing someone has broken into the property doesn’t help her feel safe.”

    This time around the would-be thieves elected to damage stabling from a house around the corner from Thomas’ place.

    Although nothing has been reported stolen, and no horses were affected, the vandals cut/destroyed the fencing around the property’s day yards.
