In a letter to the Editor of the UK’s leading horse racing daily newspaper, Racing Post, James points out that without a “profitable growth” mindset and an investment alternative that reflects it, the industry is accepting certain decline. There is no “plateau”. In this case, The Jockey Club has chosen to sell a profitable business and an iconic racecourse, Kempton Park, for housing development under the smokescreen of further investment in the sport’s “new heritage”. What is really happening is a lack of vision, a lack of bold new ideas and a lack of leadership. Yet that doesn’t have to be the case, if racing’s rulers want to leave a meaningful legacy.
