The Achilles Heel Of The Industry SP?
It was a lovely afternoon’s racing at Newton Abbot on Tuesday. Even better that the light appears to be at the end of the pandemic tunnel for racing. Some owners could attend, with one bookmaker there to service them. The bookie was happy to be there too but it’s fair to say that had it been a pre-Covid day’s racing he’d have been considering if he’d ever bother again given the business. I spoke to him just before the sixth race where he just laid his 32rd bet of the afternoon, £600 – £100 the ultimate winner of the race, which returned 5/1.
