Fair points Adrian, although if I was seriously trying to promote winter sand racing, I wouldn’t want my showcase event to be separated from the rest of the season by the mother of all NH festivals.

It is also the one race which everyone knows. I know there’s never going to be anything even approaching the scale of the Breeders’ Cup, but there ought to be ‘champion’ sprint and mile events at the very least, and maybe something for 3yos?

I just feel it’s an opportunity missed, and no-one would complain if they were creative enough to indulge in a little experimental tinkering whilst the ‘pull’ factor is as gentle as it is at the moment…
