Don't prostitute racing; LETTERS.
Racing doesn't need to change - it has already changed too much. It should revert, rather than bend over backwards until its spine is irrevocably broken.
I would prefer it to wither and die than continually prostitute itself in the vain attempt to attract the uninterested.
The people who will go racing only when there is a bouncy castle should not go racing. Get rid of the gimmicks and concentrate on the horses, who are at the centre of the greatest sport in the world.
