Worrying indeed. As a racing greyhound owner, I’m all too aware of the threat to a sport when the tracks are in the hands of investors rather than people who are actually committed to the sport itself. At least with horse racing, the biggies are owned by racing itself and so are – or should be! safe. Gosforth Park would be massively tempting as a development prospect for someone, provided they could ever get planning permission for change of use – I’m not sure what restrictions apply to Gosforth Park as a whole but would be surprised if it could be built on easily. (On the greyhound front, nothing is safe and there are persistent rumours that Walthamstow will be a victim of the Olympics and associated building schemes – absolute vandalism if allowed to happen, but sadly almost inevitable, or so it seems.)
