We need more racing people..

It's not all about betting!

Everyone who races at Borrowdale Park is aware that we need more people – on the ground – placing bets – and enjoying themselves.

The trouble is that racing newbies often find it rather intimidating – because they don’t understand what it is all about, and they don’t come back.

    Think we could do with something like this to get new people interested in racing in SA! Well done Jackie & Sheldene!

    To attract new punters to horse racing the entire racing system needs an overall so as to make it more PUNTER FRIENDLY! Shocking results won’t attract people to the race course! There are too many different types of races producing different results! This is what keeps people away!

    Agree … however in Kzn, we must do a way with only racing on the Polly. Scottsville racing should be scrapped . Two meetings at greyville in a week one on the Turf and other on the Polly . Increase the numbers of races to 10. This will give owners/ trainers more opportunities to nominate their horse. The tote should also consider having 2 jackpots on the 10 race Programme which will increase the interest . Forward thinking is what is needed …
