When Kalgoorlie was closed just off the top of my head I can think of five trainers who were very good horsemen and been in the industry 30 plus years that straight away were lost to the game.

Absolutely a shocking day for WA racing.Gray helped us out with our second horse I have ever owned. And he went on and won a Roebourne Cup for us. And I am sure he would have done the same for a lot of other people as well.Very sad day.

To be fair - it's the members club.Owners belong to RWWA, and RWWA doesn't control the venue.

We heard theyre closing more country tracks. Trainers in those towns cant travel to GP every week. The trainer pool is going to get smaller and smaller and smaller. Rid the sport of its grass roots and itll fall down. which tracks would they be closing ?

And now Mungrup shutting down.Not a good look.The government probably didnt want to keep paying his salary, being the highest paid PUBLIC SERVANT in the state.This government is slyly closing the industry down.
