Don't prostitute racing; LETTERS.

THANK YOU Laura Thompson ('Chance to promote racing as a glorious oasis' January 11). At last, someone who is prepared to point out the emperor's new clothes, or lack of.

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.
