Bookmakers vs. Tote
In the on-going argument/debate between David Thiselton (Tote) and Tony Mincione and Basil Thomas (Bookmakers), may I ask Mr Thomas or Mr Mincione (or both) to provide us with their model to sustain the horse racing industry, were the bookmakers to assume total responsibility for it. Obviously you would no longer have the “take out” of the tote, to rely on. It would give us, the readers, an opportunity to judge for ourselves. We know how the operators currently do it, let’s see how bookmakers will do it.
