THE POPE: GIVE US A CENTRALIZATION OR GIVE US…
Okay, so it’s not THAT Pope. But racing’s very own Fred Pope, a man who has never met a subject he couldn’t write a whitepaper on, has delivered some of his best work in an article and accompanying pdf with the Blood-Horse that talks about the need for a centralized authority in American racing.
His rather lengthy plan, which suggests such things as 30 days of International racing in the US and a push towards innovations like 3D technology, could start being implemented by 2011. Of course, this requires action by our industry assuming there’s even buy in.
And this begs two questions: 1. Is Pope’s plan worth implementing and 2. Is there a chance that the industry would not only adopt it, but move it forward with enough speed to start putting it together in 2011?
