Good morning all,
Yesterday’s blog has certainly sparked some lively debate both on here and on the rest of social media, which was the idea behind it, so from that point of view I’m glad it worked. When I have a bit more time tomorrow morning I’ll reply to those of you who left comments personally, and I’d like to think one or two people who may well be in a position to do something about our current situation with on-course drinking might have read it and given them food for thought.
This year, as last year, I’ll be doing some community radio for Cheltenham (along with my good friend and colleague Cathryn Fry) when the racing is on, and as part of our remit we get to interview the course execs. We will both be pushing them again on this issue and keep pushing until we feel real progress is made. We need to get a real change in the way courses deal with this issue, and I don’t intend letting it lie at a blog.
