Racecourse mocked for stable vouchers

A tweet about stable staff visiting Newbury Racecourse has gone viral.

Jeremy Mahot who was at the track on Saturday said that those working on the horses deserved more than a £2 voucher that is currently offered.

Responding to the tweet, Newbury Racecourse said: "Please be aware that Newbury do subsidise the food on offer in The Lodge for all stable staff with the voucher an additional amount to be used."

Many agreed with what Jeremy said, claiming that the Racecourse puts profits before those working on the horses. While others said that responsibility should rest with the horse trainers who employers the stable hands rather than the Racecourse.
