With tracks like Hastings Park lowering take, making positive changes to simulcast and trying to offer a better product by raising some purses we think we can all agree that support is needed.
What can we do?
Speaking to Jeff Platt we figure we can offer out some past data on track bias, trainer and rider data etc, through Jeff's database. We think that's a start.
HANA Harness has been talking to some harness tracks trying to offer support, too.
But can we do more? Any ideas?
Pool parties, webpages, coordination and everything else takes time; and time is at a premium these days. Does anyone want to get involved? Do you have some html skill to run a webpage updating tracks like Hastings who are doing the right thing? Any other ideas that we can work on together?
Slowly but surely racetracks are proving it is a time for change - positive, customer-centric change. Let's support those who have changed, and see if we can do some good.
Please let us know if you have any ideas, or if you want to take ownership of a brand new initiative. We're available via all means, twitter, facebook or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
