Greyhounds: Letters: Happy; Ben Bonell says criticism of Sky is misplaced.
Only two years ago we had to rely on one race and highlights every year for the TV Trophy. Now we have a year stocked full of racing.
Jonathan Kay moaned that the racing was not up to a high-enough standard, with a maiden included, and that the marathons involved the same stayers. Well, excuse me but isn't that a contradiction? Sky could show other marathon runners, but they might be maidens!
Also, as in premiership football, not every game is a Man Utd v Arsenal-type clash. The same applies to dog racing.
Anyway, congratulations to Les Coveney, a down-to- earth man winning the Gold Collar with Castlelyons Dani. It was well deserved.
