I see the covers are on in Durbanville. Well done on making a plan and trying to save this meeting.
.....did our local tote okes use any of these venues to try earn a few BOB.....and why are they not doing their damnest best to try grow revenue from the other many international venues by offering more exotic offerings to try enthuse die hard punters to churn more.....
Cape Racing is relying on "donations" from Hollywoodbets and Mr Bortz. The main source of stakes stated many times is derived from Tote take outs. At some stage you do not want to rely on your own money or from a subsidary company to run Cape Racing. Its like flogging a dead horse.
There is a big difference between burning your own money and working very hard to try and get a return..... and taking other peoples money to burn with little chance to even try to earn.....
Yesterday they had Parx Racing in USA in the state of Pennsylvania. About 2 hours after that racing commenced at Presque Isle Downs and about 3 hours later at Penn National. All in the state of Pennsylvania. American racing is heavily reliant on Tote take outs. How it is possible for 3 tracks to race on the same day in the same state and none of them are "Premier" tracks although Parx does stage 2 Grade 1s. They are doing something right and they should take a leaf out of their book.
