Cheltenham to grab a bigger slice from the multi-million-pound betting ring at the 2013 festival by charging on-course layers a percentage of turnover .....

GROUP 1 STATUS HANDLER RIDERS AS FOLLOWSAll top professional bloodhorse literate achievers handler riders inclusive and found within all these areas, breeders, owners, trainers, handler riders, work riders and licensed senior jockeys. All those who have achieved bloodhorse literacy in their lifetime. These are the people who need to challenge the government, the racecourses, the bookmakers, and the regulators these are the people who are being ripped off themselves to include the horses.
PAY BACK TIMEThe greedy bankers, the greedy bookmakers, the greedy government, the greedy racecourses, and the greedy regulators have left the heart of British horseracing haemorrhaging right left and centre over the last seven decades.

So before the rich racecourses attack the rich bookmakers for more money they need to settle their huge debt to the bloodhorse literate to include the horses. whom they have got away with ripping off over the last seven decades.
