Marketing and jumps ban blamed for poor racing turnout

Former Oakbank Racing Club chair John Glatz has blamed poor marketing and the loss of jumps racing for the low turnout at the Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival.

A former chair of the Oakbank Racing Club says a lack of promotion, technical issues and Racing SA’s ban on jumps racing led to low attendance at the club’s Easter Racing Carnival.
John Glatz said he had “never ever seen so little atmosphere” and was appalled at seeing such “a small crowd”.
