Does that annoy anyone else or is it just me
With racing these days not looking quite so glamorous this really will be the future of sponsorship.
The big beneficiaries of the industry will be required to keep propping it up.
The other races on the card were sponsored by a racehorse syndicator, a big screen co., The MRC and a funeral director.
While the funeral director might look the odd one out, maybe there is a connection between a very bad day on the punt and death.
I did wonder who would stump up $500k for the Interdominion final for an industry that has carried the well earned title 'the red hots' for years.
IRT are international horse transporters.
Does that mean one day we will have The Meramist Melbourne cup or 'Fitzgeral Pastoral Co. AKA Burn's Pet Foods will become slot holders in The Everest?
Maybe not in my lifetime but I am getting on.
