New show countdown - an outlet for racing's punters
Thursday, 17 December 2009
RacenetTV is launching a new show on Friday – one committed to giving a voice to a section of the industry so often overlooked by decision-makers.
The Punters’ Show will be online for the first time with two Sydney betting ring regulars joining RacenetTV’s Dallas Baker to discuss all the issues affecting racing’s biggest consumer.
Marc Lambourne and Glenn Pollett are well known to Sydney racegoers.
They are not short of an opinion and they are not afraid to tell it how it is when it comes to punters spending their hard-earned.
“I’m looking forward to being back in the media and pulling no punches,” Lambourne declared.
Pollett, who has been a bookmaker and now never misses a meeting as a punter, is just as enthusiastic when it comes to punters receiving a fair deal.
“Hopefully, to use a well-known phrase, ‘we’ll keep the bastards honest’,” he says.
To ensure the voice of the punter is heard, Racenet is inviting its audience to participate in the show by bringing issues and questions to the panel.
Registration for questions to be put to the panel will be open after Friday’s show.
