When do you think we'll get back on a racecourse lads? Used to curse the small turnouts at some of my local tracks (Gowran, Clonmel) but would take a low turnout now if it meant getting back.

Good point Frank. Did you see Arthur Moore's letter in the Times today? Also an article containing it on the RP site. Made a lot of good points about getting racing back on. But main references were about the classics and the big overseas owners. No mention of the small trainer or owner. The life blood of the game.
