  • Horse Flu

    Would you feel bad if a casino went under? Someone explain to me why not being able to race horses for 3 months is tragic.

    there are a lot of people affected. people that work with horses such as race-day groomers, helpers, transporters, people working at the track, catering, etc.

    in perth it's more of an issue than other states. we only have one casino. if burswood closed (while i hate casinos and the pain they cause) there would be a lot of people out of work.

        So you didnt know horse racing is the fourth biggest industry in australia?
        If horses couldnt be raced for 3 months just a few of the ramifications would be: Thousands of people directly involved out of work, trainers and jockeys, Farriers would have stuff all work, many thousands are employed by race courses around the country, catering, cleaning, admin, entertainment etc, tab's might as well shut, this is tip of the iceberg stuff, the list would be huge if it was possible to compile one that listed all affected.
        Its not just a bunch of horseys running around a track on a saturday, but a huge industry..

            But how is that any different from being shareholders in a casino? The horse racing industry exists to extort money from the public. Why then is it such a horrible thing when it suffers a financial setback? As the forth biggest industry in WA I would be pretty confident that it will spring back from this loss.

                          Anyone else catch Hamish & Andy going on about horse flu? It was something like..

                          So there is now a 50000 fine if your caught moving your horse out of the quarantine area.
                          - Yeah?
                          Yeah, and I can understand it in some cases
                          - Yeah some of those racehorses are worth millions
                          I can imagine some people running the risk to get their million dollar steeds back into home stables
                          - SO whats with those guys caught bringing their donkey across quarantine lines?
                          How important is your donkey that you risk a 50000 fine moving it???

                              Thanks for fixing the word filter dude, was spinning out

                              Well, Im just using casino as a metaphor. I just dont see what is so bad about there not being horse racing for a while. And it's pissing me off that the news is giving such a disproportionate priority to this, it reeks of moguls using media outlets to pressurise govts about stuff. That's not news, that's wealthy people ranting. That's what I reckon, and if someone can learn me otherwise well, hence this thread

                              Today this morning put me over the edge, so I took a deep breath and chanced flicking over to sunrise. There was a guy saying how evil pocketbikes are
