Letter: Get Weatherbys involved.

Byline: Jane Southall

I READ with enthusiasm and much interest Kim Bailey's call for Weatherbys to be involved in the collection and payment of training fees.

About time, should be the reaction, as I seem to recall this scenario being banded about way back in the mid-'80s.

The slow/non-payment of training fees is a constant thorn in a trainer's side, so why not make the trainers' lot considerably easier by the implementation of the above?

Historically, racing clubs/syndicates seem to have a less than glowing record in this regard, and making this system mandatory may encourage more trainers to welcome their long-term involvement.

Of course, nothing is fool-proof. The non-payment of training fees to Weatherbys is possible - let us not forget the long list of ex-owners published in the racing calendar stretching back several years!

Surely, this is an initiative to crack on with? During my brief spell with a licence I was fortunately blessed with wonderful return-of-post-paying owners.
