RAILBIRD NOTES BY GLEN TODD

HAPPY CANADA DAY EVERYONE

ENTRY DAY TOMORROW FOR OPENING DAY AT HASTINGS

Hastings Racing Office opens at 7:00am tomorrow morning to take entries for the first two days of the 2020 live racing season.   I must admit I often wondered if this day would ever come but here our and even though its a short season we are racing.

We all must be thankful for all of the owners who kept the faith and continued to pay for the training for the last several months, Without these owners who kept many of the trainers , grooms, exercise riders,  etc, employed thru these unknown times we would not be racing.

A large shout out to the many owners who reached into their pockets and sponsored several of the stake races for the season. Without these gracious owners we would not have a stake schedule.  What little money we do have was nearly all directed at the overnight races.

To David Milburn, President of the HBPA and Ole Nielsen the President of BCTOBA who worked alongside of me for tireless hours trying to put this season together, many, many thanks.  We had some hard decisions to reach several times but we stuck together and came up with what we have.

Good Luck to everyone as we move forward in these very trying times
