Happened at Kempton with West Brom 'fans' on the rampage and of course more recently the Welsh at Newbury beating each other up.
I have absolutely no problem with Welsh people inficting g.b.h upon each other but would rather it didn't happen at a racecourse.

Can't speak for the rails as I was only in the tatts. All 31 books were 1/5 a place in the 19 runner Imperial Cup. And they wonder why the on course market is dying. There was 1 book going 1/4 on the back row. AB Betting or GB betting I think they were called. After realising they were the only book going a 1/4 I went back to place a bet with them. By this time they'd revised their terms and had gone 1/5 a place.

Yes it would. To a large extent this 'post event fight' element has been removed from football - and that hasn't suffered.
Report Larry Sellers March 10, 2013 10:53 AM GMT
I am a member at Sandown and not surprised to hear of fighting, albeit a little shocked that a stabbing was involved.

The stewards at the track are only responsible for checking badges and nobody is there to keep a check on crowd behaviour.  Loads of stag dos there yesterday as usual - I have nothing agianst them in general 'stag' was wearing a jockey outfit with an A4 piece of paper safety pinned on his back saying 'Kn0b Jonkey!'.  Why is this allowed?  If anything, he should have been forced to remove it on the basis that it is not even remotely amusing, letalone how crass it is.  It wouldn't be allowed anywhere else and just adds to the antisocial behaviour that is gradually ruining what has always been a great day out for everyone.

Also, it surprises me just how absolutely f*cked some people are at the track.  I saw plenty that were hardly able to stand by the third race.  Add to that, and you may call be a snob, but groups of neck tatooed thugs effing and blinding at the top of their voices - they look like they belong in prison.  I note that Chelsea weren't playing yesterday and the thug ratio is hightened when there is no game.

I too am a member at Sandown and was there both Friday and Saturday....what a difference a day makes, the Friday crowd was made up of many officers/soldiers wearing obligatory brownish tweed suits (many were ill fitting) and dark suits with obligatory two back vents in their jackets.Most looked like fish out of water and would probably have been much happier wearing fatigues. The great majority of them were holding pint glasses throughout the afternoon however there was a very pleasant atmosphere to the day despite it being very cold.Yesterday couldn't have been more different....the place was packed with low life;mainly weedy looking individuals with feral faces and as mentioned earlier by another poster those cretins who adorn themselves with tattoos. As the afternoon went on it became clear that the rowdyism was increasing and yet there wasn't a policeman in sight. Fearing the worst I'd had enough after the 5th race and left early.

What this country needs is a strong man in charge who will eliminate the low life once and for all.....anti social behaviour should not be tolerated....end of rant.
Report Larry Sellers March 10, 2013 11:48 AM GMT
posy - I complained to Sandown about this sort of thing last year and was imppressed that the MD took the time to call me and discuss.  He said they were aware that someting needs to be done but a year later nothing has changed Sad

One of the things he mentioned was the possibility of banning drinking in the stands.  I said at the time that that wouldn't make much difference apart from stopping decent folk from enjoying a drink whist wathcing the racing.  I still stand by this.

All that is needed is some hired 'security' to keep a check on antisocial behaviour and if necessary, eject those that persist.  I didn't see any police there.  They should be at least one or two for a crowd that size surely????
Report posy March 10, 2013 12:21 PM GMT
Larry   Quite agree with you re allowing drinking in the stands; i hate it when law abiding, well behaved people's enjoyment is curtailed because of the cretins. A police presence is a 'must' for a Saturday meeting and both police and stewards should have the right to crack down very heavily on bad behaviour...a zero tolerance is required. Otherwise not a lot that can be done by the racecourse;it's a Society problem and the sooner Society is prepared to exterminate these people the better.

Ten held at Sandown Park racecourse after man stabbed
The brawl at Sandown Park followed a day of racing

Ten men have been arrested after a man was stabbed at the end of a day of horse racing at Sandown Park in Surrey.

Police were called to the scene off Portsmouth Road, in Esher, at about 18:15 GMT on Saturday following reports of an altercation in the car park.

The victim, in his 40s, suffered a stab wound to the neck and is in a stable condition in hospital. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Another man was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Det Insp Kevin Jewell, said: "A large number of people would have been leaving the venue around the time that the altercation happened so I am certain that members of the public must have seen the incident taking place, and would urge them to contact police as soon as possible."

A statement from Sandown Park said: "We can confirm that a serious assault took place after racing outside the main entrance at Sandown Park Racecourse and the matter is now in the hands of the police.

"Security at our tracks is taken very seriously and it is distressing for everyone involved that an incident like this occurred."
