What about the horses?
Seven’s Spring Racing Telecast is to be congratulated for the self-promotion of its shows and sponsors’ products, and the inane interviews with the so-called celebrities, hangers-on, etc. There happened to be horses and races, but they were immaterial to the constant statistic chatter of Bruce Mcavaney, who wasted so much time that could have been used to show horses in the mounting yard. It is to be hoped the VRC can get a better deal from some other network for future Cup carnivals because this lot needs a shake-up.
