Is he Ravage Again? I'm sorry to read that as I used to bet with him at Milton Keynes back in the day and was a very decent man to trade with.

Great news that 2 tracks are being reopened, just a big shame that one of them isn't Catford Sad

Not sure to be honest was only jesting

I think he might of been bookieing still at the horses a few years ago

Hope he’s still alive and OK

He did lay a decent bet - old school style

Cant believe this is happening
West Row (mildenhall) is a tiny village in the middle ofnowhere
There are small housing estates in the area but it is mostly arable fenland.
The first rule of business is location, location, location.
How he can make a profit from a greyhound track in a field at the end of a US military aircraft runway miles from anywhere is beyond me.

as for Oxford ....
Several developers are interested in buying the site and the city council is in ‘ongoing discussions with several parties’, according to cabinet member for planning and housing delivery Alex Hollingsworth.

He added: “The council’s intention, which we’ve made clear all along, is either the current owners bring it back into use as a leisure venue or sell to someone who will.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how these plans develop.

“The intention has always been to have something viable to the benefit of the community.

“Clearly we’d like it to happen sooner rather than later, but the planning policy is clear.”

Mr Hollingsworth previously said the council’s ‘last resort’ was buying the stadium from Galliard using a compulsory purchase order.

Galliard did not respond to a request for comment.

Suffolk Springs or whatever it is called will be fine.
The deals are all centred around SIS and their need for tracks when the bulk move to ATR/Entain.
They will obviously be putting in plenty of funds to help Boothby get these tracks
up and running and then be pulling up chunks in media rights.
Its all great news for the sport which will need competition between tracks in the long term or the sport will
be reduced to the lowest allowable common denominator by ARC.

In 2006 a couple bought a house close to Mildenhall Stadium where stock car racing and speedway have taken place since 1975, and began complaining about the noise. The couple took the stadium to court in 2014 and won resulting in the threat of closure for the stadium.[12] In between the track experienced a temporary suspension following the exit of promoter Carl Harris.[13]

Weren't you Irish ,was it ? Laugh

Close Case
I did actually live in west row
Funniest thing was lad called Balls
His family used to run a coach company from the back of the village
Played footbakl for them once
...and he did a right dirty tackle and ref wanted to book him
Ref said name, he said Balls and ref sent him off
Greyhound track was way out in the boonies
Good fishing out there though
......and the speedway tigers !
