Facts
He did exactly the same with the Silver ring,only this time he allowed all the Silver ring patrons into Tatts so the Silver ring books hadn't a customer.

Desperate times fact just goes to show the racecourses can and will do as they see fit.. bookmakers are of little regard.. racecourses are a business at the end of the day and if they can save a wage by not having a bloke on the gate between members and tatts then why not

Shows extremely bad management (once again) by the Haydock Park supremo's. A little consultation and an explanation of the reasoning behind the decision probably would have helped and allowed Bookmakers to make plans armed with some knowledge of the situation. Disgrace imho.

You should just go and pitch up in Tatts, if it's good enough for the punters etc.

Although I agree racecourses are a business could the marketing fee be once again explained to me? when at a NBPA meeting two years back Steve Clare(I think that's how its spelt)informed us the money would be used to get people into the racecourse which would then be beneficial in getting more people attending the tracks which would then consequently improve business for racecourse bookmakers

I'm told there were customers fuming that had paid for County Badges when they found out that the tatts customers were to be allowed in for no extra cost and I don't blame them.  I wonder how the annual members feel about this policy?

A bookie spoke to the guy in charge and he seemed unsurprisingly a bit naïve re the bookmaking situation,he said they had identified these fixtures as poorly attended (less than 2000) and thought it was a good idea to get everyone in one enclosure to engineer a vibrant atmosphere!
When told it had made tatts unworkable he suggested it might be an idea to merge the tatts books into the members as well!!!

They have done it at Chepstow ribero1 so there is a precedent.  I don't think the rails bookies who already have the best pitches on the track (if not the country) would agree.

Didn't realise that wasnot re Chepstow,that would put the cat amongst the pigeons!
