Considering we have fair stock at a huge disadvantage when they do make the effort to travel.
My understanding is that it would boost the breeding industry to have more overseas buyers and hopefully have a rippling effect on SA racing.
I do see it possibly having a negative effect on the quality of horses local to punt but on the other hand if we have more well bred horses, it might just give us enough stock to cover both requirements?
I probably wont be around long enough to witness this, but one thing for sure is we need something to change or inject into SA racing.
Good punting and breeding
