South African racing television has always been in the spotlight. And none more so than right now, when confusion reigns as to where we can watch what.
Marlon Sing writes in the Sporting Post Mailbag that he has a much more straightforward question to ask.
I have a simple question and want a very simple answer. What is the purpose and function of Tellytrack presenters in KZN and Gauteng?
All they ever do is give us as punters the form of the horses, which we already know. If we are taking bets on a horse we obviously study form.
The Eastern Cape puts both KZN and Gauteng to sleep.
As punters we want info from Trainers, Grooms, Jockeys and Owners of what they think about their horses and to hear how well their horses are doing back at the stables.
We surely do not want presenters giving us a study about a horse’s form! If we as punters wanted that we would not have been buying Winning Form and Computaform etc.
What do other players feel?
