Quote :
Proposals to modernise British horse racing's image, including an end to traditional odds, have been unveiled.

The initiatives announced by the Racing For Change taskforce on Tuesday are aimed at boosting the popularity of the sport and attracting a wider audience.

Among them is a plan to end the use of the fractional odds system currently used by the betting industry.

A racecourse trial in the spring will see odds of 15/8, for example, becoming 1.9/1, and 6/4 becoming 1.5/1.



Among other plans are a major overhaul of fixtures to create premier racing events and clearly defined seasons.

In addition, all jockeys and trainers will be listed on racecards by their first names as well as their surnames and official racecourse announcements will be simplified.



FFS, why do they have to ruin everything?

If you can't figure out what 7/2 odds mean then you really shouldn't be in the Bookies spending your money in the first place!

The decimal system has been in American racing for years ... and that figures.

I'd be very interested if you were to post up a tutorial on it Bee?

I've grown up in a house with a man who has a flutter on the gee gee's and never understood it?..................

Not that it would make the blindest bit of difference to me, I still think the horses should ride the jockey's and let them get whipped!.....

but at least I would understand the odds! lmao



Thanks to .tUrniP for the sig
