    G'Day Pat,

    Correct Pat, a lot of potential owners realise that the stake money in harness racing is a joke even greyhound races are worth more than harness races in Albion Park, Globe Derby and Tassy. It really is diabolical when you can make more money from greyhounds per capita than you can with harness racing unless you are fortunate enough to own an outstanding horse. How many 1 million dollar races in harness racing? answer 1 the ID final in Perth....what a joke. Stake money increase has lagged behind for years except for Menangle.

    Harness racing in importance is now at the bottom behind thoroughbred and greyhounds and as more potential owners become less interested the more dire it will be for the racing code. I can see the demise of racing happening in Queensland and South Australia unless they can get immediate support from the states government and it's not looking very promising in the other states as well unless there is a substantial increase in stake money just to keep up with the greyhounds and to bring in new owners.

    They havent finished yet. Important thing about this task force is that they are investigating all three codes.

    Hi Chris, I would not be surprised if losing money when long odds on favourites get beat, could cost us followers but I am not convinced as to whether getting $1.05 as opposed to $1.00 when you 'make the mistake' of backing something SUPER short would be the reason for losing people

    I feel for Commissioner Ross Barnett, you do however have to wonder whether the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission is an oxymoron
