    Any new product would pretty well be all about turnover. Even a product change like making our last race of a night no later than 10 pm. Doesn't really impact turnover but looks after participants.

    Saturday mornings were brought up pre COVID19 during Dayle Brown's CEO roadshows. Again brought up, I think, when Dayle was at the Boort Cup early March. Can't quite remember but the idea might be a Twenty20 type set up for Sat mornings. In and out quick, 10:40 am start, 6 races twenty minutes apart.

    You have to be joking
    It will be interesting to see the betting figures
    Is it being put on for 6.30pm New York?

    This industry often curses administrators for lack of innovation. Good on them for trying this out

    Got me out of bed early!

    Fantastic call by Dan. Obviously heavily aimed at the US.

    Bit strange to have the morning meeting on the same day as a night meeting there . Two meetings in the same region on the same day is also strange, trainers and drivers have to go home and come back a few hours later !
    Don't die wondering !
