As we all should know by now, in this technology driven world, once the backend doesn’t work, it’s cause for alarm when running any business.

Horse racing is an industry. It’s not about having some fairy godmother who sprinkles horse racing with fairy dust and creates a hobbyist pastime out of the goodness of her heart. It’s not where everyone is welcome for free to watch modern day warriors on their magnificent steeds do battle with there being victors and the vanquished throughout the day. There’s no such thing as a free lunch and there’s no such thing as a free race meeting.
