On Monday, as TV and theatre actor Craig McLachlan became the latest public figure to be embroiled in a raft of allegations of sexual misconduct in the workplace, there was one question on the lips of everyone in the Crikey bunker: "Sure, sure, these stories are awful. But what does entrepreneur and racing enthusiast John Singleton make of all of this?"

Clearly we were not alone. Thankfully, The Australian and Caroline Overington were able to satisfy this nationwide burning need to know by getting the scoop from the man himself -- who was about to embark on a "horse-buying spree", which is apparently a thing. Singleton appears to have no book to promote, no new business venture to spruik, no reason at all to get into the papers, except that the reading public, apparently, really need to know the horse-buying septuagenarian's views on sexual harassment.
