MPI’s first decision was the sensible and RIGHT one for the industry.

Who Convinced Them Otherwise.

Government Pro’s -

MPI is helping Winston ensure closure of Tracks.

MPI is helping TAB as after their last debacle (bonus bet botch-up) looked likely to reduce their payouts to the codes

Con’s -

MPI has now created thousand’s more clients for Work and Income

MPI has now robbed the IRD of taxes for a reported 1.6 billion to GDP annually

MPI has now put racing into lockdown for two months not one.

 

There may be some trainers who shut up shop early for the season but they are only a drop-in-the-bucket of trainers who’s livelihood depends on racing.

By far the biggest majority of trainers have small teams and work them themselves so isolation is not the problem.

 

WHO is advising MPI and convinced them to change their minds.

 

My bet is on the Greyhounds be up and running first.

MPI came out with a rediculous declaration saying that horses cannot be trained, only light excercise and no fast work. If you are training on your own property without outside staff, why should you be pevented from getting your horse ready to race as soon as the lockdown is over. Pressure for this has come from the big stables that decided to close down and now want to stop the little guys from getting the jump on them when the lockdown is finished

I think it’s more to do with the bigger stables not being able to go to Oz. May have been a differenceif Oz was still an option to race at.
