BTC not taking blame
OPINION maybe divided but the Barbados Turf Club (BTC) is taking none of the blame for last weekend’s tragic incident at the Garrison Savannah when five-year-old chestnut gelding Ranak snapped his left front leg in the final race of the day.
BTC chief executive officer Rosette Peirce told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday there was nothing dangerous about the conditions of the track, adding that the incident was unfortunate.
“People are making assumptions and accusations but I am not aware of any issue of that part of the track. Anyone is welcome to come down here and check the track.
“I am issuing an open invitation for photos to be taken where the incident occurred and maybe people can have a look and tell me what it is there that would have caused the horse to break his leg,” she said. (MK)
