Would They Ever?

The people who run racing in SA have never been renowned for their imagination but let’s see if someone in Gold Circle or Phumelela has the nous to suggest we hire John McCririck to provide a truly original and entertaining interlude that would elevate our currently amateurish coverage of local racing.

McCririck’s departure from the UK racing scene has the country’s sporting public and racing press up in arms; we love in SA and he is there for the asking. But its unlikely because Telly Track would never consider anything so informative and attractive. Hell, it might even cause viewers to watch the programme which now no longer puiblishes race identification, fields or betting on replays and may or may not reveal breeding of winners.
