It seems that betting at Stawell is a bit on the nose... only 2 or 3 bookies operating and those seemed to do so out of a sense of duty more than anything from what I could see.

Question is - Is that good or bad for the sport? Now that you can bet on anything its certainly not a point of differentiation like it might have been in the past and there mustn't be enough money in it if the corporate bookies don't infest themselves upon it so it seems it could be dying a slow death.

Do we risk losing something that is the fabric of pro running if it stops all together? Are we better off without it? Or is it Ok if it still happens off to the side largely for novelty value?

I think it is something that could be used to attract people to the sport but I am from an older generation and maybe the young kids are not into it like I was
