BEN’S BLOG: ‘Towcester holding the Greyhound Derby is Great News for Greyhound Racing.’
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]ome of the best news, of the year, has reached me: Towcester will now be hosting The Greyhound Derby.
I don’t know if the GBGB were trying to keep us all on tender-hooks, but thank God, they’ve made the right decision. I am certain that this is a positive move for Greyhound Racing. Kevin Ackerman and the Heskeths impress with their innovation and ability to do things ‘properly’.
What I really do hope; is that Star Sports will be heavily involved, in this superb competition. It’ll be a delight to bet on-course, at The Dogs, once again. And Kevin has so many fresh ideas, that will REALLY jazz things up, it will be exciting just to be part of the show. I shall not steal his thunder though!!
Now is a positive time for Greyhound Racing. Let’s encourage more innovation and progressive action. Not all of it will work, but in the longterm; the sport will benefit. GREAT NEWS FOR GREYHOUND RACING.
Over and out, B x
