1st July 2020
Plus 13 and cloudy when driving in.
Here were are.. it is July 1st.. another month gone, but more importantly today is the first day of the 2020/2021 Jumps season..Southwell starts us off and we actually have a runner there.
Racing was put in a very difficult position yesterday when racing at Leicester went ahead.. Many disagreed with the idea that they should have raced and several trainers made a decision not to send their horses..
But the local health authorities said that the race meeting should go ahead, so the BHA had every right to allow it to do so.
Twitter had a few comments and of course they all brought up the old cabbage of you ‘raced at Cheltenham’.. Yes we did and although that was before lockdown many have not forgotten, or forgiven.
Yesterday, like Cheltenham, the government and their health advisers allowed racing to go ahead and if that is the case we should support… lets face it, not many people were there and racing now provides one of the safest environments to be in..
Many complained because local business were closed and many felt it was wrong that the meeting should have gone ahead..
But, will they feel the same way when Leicester Football Club leave Leicester to go to Liverpool to play Everton tonight, and more so, how will they feel when Leicester play Crystal Place at home on Saturday..
On top of that..I just wonder how many local fans will travel to Nottingham or other the surrounding areas, which are not in lockdown, just to watch the game from their newly opened pubs?
As you know I don’t have a huge knowledge of football, but am I right to assume that the players drive in daily to train, and probably don’t live in the City?..
Moving on.. Many thanks for all the advice about yesterdays threatening email on my blog.. I promise you I took no notice of the email and have no intention of doing anything about it, but I was suprised how many of you have had similar emails too..
