    Thanks for posting that Kevin. I've joined the Harness Racing Forum and will aim to make contributions from time to time.

    It's great to see you interacting with industry supporters David, through all of the various channels. While I'm from WA so much of what you talk about doesn't really affect our horses, it definitely gives me a feeling that you're thinking of the little guys

    Thanks Katie. The 'little guys' have been a significant focus for HRV in recent months. They play a really important role in the sport, and I know from my discussions with many of them how tough they're doing it. Initiatives like the $750 bonus for any horse winning a $3500 or $5000 race in September and October will hopefully helped a few, along with other races such as the 2.02 race (can only enter if your horse has an average time of 2.02 or worse for it's last 5 starts) or the other race whereby you can only enter if as a trainer you had 2 or less wins in the prior season. If you or others have ideas that we can consider, we'd love to hear them.

    I don't know what your advertising budget is like but I wonder whether getting a couple of young social media influencers along to a night or two will help raise awareness and the profile of the trots amongst younger audiences.

    I think having 2 meetings (a day and a night) whenever there is a Mildura meet is worth considering as IMO a Mildura meet is the equivalent of an interstate meet to many Vics - you just have to run your eyes down the Trainer column to see that they are a whole different group

    Surprising/ridiculous to think a $7k C0 at Swan Hill tonight would end up with only 4 going around

    I still don't think the prizemoney for an M0 in Victoria is enough at $16k. We have some C0 races for $10k
    I know for trainers and owners, it is about picking the most profitable path for your horse and therefore they may not be concerned but IMO a metro win should be a big deal
