Yesterday a press release was issued by Playersboycott.org, announcing an organized boycott of California racing. A horseplayer wrote: "Good luck getting someone in the media to run the release, because the mainstream racing press is paid for by past performance downloads and ads from California racing"
So far he is right on the mark. No links.
But isn't it a paradox? Racing sites get their revenue from California racing, so they cater to California racing. Racing gets all its revenue from us - the horseplayer - so why is the horseplayer ignored so often in this sport?
Playersboycott.org is looking for a few good men and women - for flyers, facebook management, twitter account management, article writing and more. If interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Jennie Rees has linked it. And so has Equidaily so far today.
