FBGOA comes out in support of `New Deal'.
On page 60 today, the Federation calls on all owners to get behind the BGRB plan, which hopes to significantly increase the income entering the sport from the betting industry through exploiting the intellectual property rights that the BGRB claims to hold.
The BGRB has demanded an additional pounds 30m, on top of the pounds 16m that the sport currently earns via BAGS fees and the Fund.
Bookmakers have refuted New Deal, and have effectively told the BGRB it `hasn't a hope in hell' because they claim to have all the rights they need through the BAGS contracts they have with tracks.
The BGRB is expected to respond today to comments that were made in yesterday's Racing Post from Alan Ross, MD of Ladbrokes, on that point.
nAN interview with Geoffrey Thomas and Paschal Taggart after Monday's talks between the BGRB and the IGB should make the Greyhound View essential viewing this week. It can be seen on Sky Sports 2 at 5pm and 11pm today, 8am and 2pm tomorrow, and Sky Sports 3 at 7.30pm this evening.
The track action includes Serene Rumble's record-breaking Grand Prix victory.
