A lot has been said about the urgent need to return to racing, but let’s not forget..
Owners don’t rely on horse racing for income and survival, they rely on their businesses or high paying jobs. Directly or indirectly, the ban on earning a living affects everyone including the well-heeled.
When costs have to be slashed, what if training fees are first in line? The re-legalization of racing won’t help, nor will the drastic stakes cut. Owners need their income back to pay training fees.
