Saturday’s CT front page main item has the local ‘racing’ industry, (apparently consisting of thoroughbred, harness and greyhound afficiendos) up in arms that they are not being paid millions more from the ACT Treasury to pursue their interests.
I would cross the road to see a horse race to save my life, but for no other reason.
On what grounds do these people have a claim on the ACT ratepayers?
UPDATED: While there is no online version of this story, there is a story today about ACTSport wanting more governemnt money for local sporting clubs. Whether the two stories are related depends on whether you think racing is a sport.
