Early morn­ing rac­ing to sat­isfy early bet­tors

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT -

WHO wants to go grey­hound rac­ing early in the morn­ing? Well, they’re go­ing to be do­ing just that at Kilkenny and Water­ford tracks through the stag­ing of new SIS meet­ings.

The first races at both venues will be at 8.18am and, what­ever about the en­thu­si­asm of pa­trons in those parts, the im­por­tant thing from the point of view of SIS is that the rac­ing will be streamed live into more than 4,000 bet­ting of­fices in the UK, with the ser­vice, of course, also avail­able to on­line op­er­a­tives and Ir­ish bet­ting of­fices, though the lat­ter won’t be open for the early races (Amen to that!).

Own­ers and train­ers ev­ery­where are well used to get­ting up very early in the morn­ing and the lat­est SIS meet­ings are wel­come grist to the mill for those of them rac­ing at Water­ford and Kilkenny, but imag­ine be­ing in a bet­ting of­fice some­where in Great Bri­tain and wait­ing for the 8.18am races from those venues to be­gin.

Not to be en­vied, those pun­ters, surely.
