Local horse trainer's call for a fair go
A local horse trainer is standing up to the Mr. Bigs of Racing NSW and is demanding that Goulburn be given its fair share of the more lucrative Friday schedule.
Ken Callaghan has finally broken his silence after becoming fed up with Goulburn being allocated just four out of 20 Friday meets each year.
TAB turnover for Tuesdays range from $700,000 to $800,000, while Friday's attract between $1 million and $1.5 million.
Mr. Callaghan believes Goulburn is getting the raw end of the stick with the Hunter Valley receiving the pick of the crop.
Goulburn's racing surface is considered the best in NSW and it's very popular for owners who want to stay for the weekend.
The good news is that Goulburn will host four and then six Fridays the following two seasons.
However Mr. Callaghan says that's not good enough and believes, the racing fraternity in Southern NSW have to take a stand.
