    I see in the paper that the Jockeys are getting tired now, and they are allowed to pick their races to keep fresh for a Big Meet.

    It was the Footballers who got to the stage of "melt down" with fatique because of the number of games they played in a week { 2 }.

    If you add the number of races and the number of games, it is not exactly a full weeks work at the minimum number of hours allowed. I wish I could be tired at their pay a week.

    As anyone else any thoughts on the wage structure of these so called Sports Stars, after all it all comes out of the Fans pockets, which could be you.

    They should try working up to 14hrs (longer in summer) a day on a farm, 365 days a year, all for 19p for every litre of milk that we get paid for.
