So at 20:20 (Dundalk) this evening, where were the horses? Sauntering round the paddock with not a care in the world.
At 20:25, the horses finally arrived at the post and just sauntered around for a while.
Finally, they loaded the horses into the stalls and the race got under way over 9 mins late.
Ok, there were no clashes with other races - but I doubt whether it would have been any different had there been.
Had they got their finger out, they could have started on time, more or less - BUT THEY DIDN'T.
What's the point of a race schedule?
