What where the BHA thinking!

You may be forgiven for thinking that as I have chosen to specialise in All Weather racing that I am an emissary and staunch advocate for racing on artificial surfaces. Although I make good profits from the All Weather every year the processes and methods I use can be equally rewarding on both ‘Flat Turf’ racing and ‘National Hunt’. The ONLY reason that the All Weather has become my poison of choice is that the workload and spread of meetings is more manageable than the other codes so the occasional added fixtures is not always welcome news.

I fully understand the majority view that All Weather racing lacks something of the spectacle enjoyed on the National Hunt and to a degree flat racing and if you are a National Hunt fan during the winter months I am sure the loss of meetings can be frustrating. It must be particularly frustrating when the BHA take the measure of adding an extra fixture on the All Weather to pacify racing fans loss of a National Hunt meeting.

Surely it takes no more effort to add an additional National Hunt fixture than it does an All Weather fixture. At a time of year when National Hunt trainers have their stables firing on all cylinders you would expect an additional National Hunt fixtures to be better supported than from the limited stock available on the All Weather.   

I am totally bewildered by the decision of the BHA, on the loss of Sundays Fontwell meeting to organise an additional fixture at Wolverhampton. Not just in terms of the code but in geographical terms. With Fontwell tucked down in the South East with at least 10 National Hunt courses in close proximity and two All Weather courses far easier accessed by the racing enthusiasts likely to have made the trip to Fontwell, they make the decision to hold the additional fixture in the Midlands!


Am I missing something?    

Good Luck to all playing at 'Leafy' today :)
