There have been many articles recently and over the years on what needs to be done for the horseracing industry to survive.
Not one article mentioned the two most important things that contribute to the survival of ‘the sport of kings’.
Some of the suggestions put forward may or may not work. The bottom line is that worldwideand Trinidad and Tobago is not the exception-horseracing is surviving and will only survive if the location is correct and there is ‘atmosphere’. Those two elements work hand in hand. The Arima track has neither.
The Queen’s Park Savannah, known to the racing fraternity as ‘The Big Yard’, had both.
Something to think about.
