16th September 2014
Just redoing my entry diary (tool I use for planning entries) for the week beginning Monday 22nd September after all the handicap rating changes this morning. These new handicap ratings come into effect for entries made yesterday (Monday) but are not published until the following morning at 8am. Great, eh?
Anyway, next Thursday at Redcar there is a seven race card with two Sellers and not a single race above £4,500 total value. The whole card carries £30,000 prize money and I think Redcar will be gathering something in the region of £60,000 in media rights, plus Levy Board payments, plus entry fees, plus sponsorship, plus gate money. Well, maybe not a lot of gate money. I can’t imagine many people wanting to go and watch that.
