Many changes coming to local horse racing

GEORGE BAPTISTE Friday, February 17 2017

LOOK out for many changes in the local horse racing at Santa Rosa Park, Arima.

ARC president Linford Carrabon sent out this message to a packed cadre of local turfites at the annual Jetsam Awards ceremony at the Century Ballroom of the Queen’s Park Oval, on Wednesday night.

He admitted that like the economy, horse racing is in dire straits, and exhorted stakeholders to work more closely so the sport can move forward.

But the president noted that first up, the ARC appointed a new general manager in Anthony Wight, a retired airline captain, who brings integrity to the sport..

And already, Wight has gone through the paddock area and is contemplating what changes are to be made.

Carrabon also stated that sponsorship is sorely needed in the sport, and reiterated that serious discussions are to be had to keep the sport alive.

He ended by saying: “Horse racing is in intensive care and needs major surgery.” Ken Ogeer, a consultant, gave a synopsis of the new Gambling and Betting Act in which he noted that the Bill soon to be laid in Parliament will electronically monitor all betting establishments.

And he pointed out certain criteria by which owners and promoters will be granted licences.

He also stated that the Act will allow government to enter any premises and seize equipment.

He warned, however, that an unlicenced promoter will face a fine of up to $5 million and also five years in jail.

As anticipated, the John O’Brien-trained, Thisonesforron, was named Horse of the Year following his six victories and three third places during the 2016 season.

At the function, Rolf Bartolo became the first to get the Most Improved Horseman award.
