Your Voice is Heard
Thank you all for your efforts.
The number of signatures delivered to 10 Downing Street on Friday June 12th 2009 topped 184,740 - these people have now signed the petition on BBC cuts to live racing TV broadcasts. The petition was delivered by Frankie Dettori and Sir Peter O'Sullevan and others backing the Racing Post Campaign.
Now lets have more coverage plus more documentaries on the grass-root-teamwork behind the scenes without which the horseracing stage would be an empty one.
Our viewing would not be possible without the skilled expertize of all those who work daily behind the scenes at the dangerous sharp end of the multi billion pound British horseracing industry
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to ask the BBC to retain its current levels of horseracing coverage, as befits a public service broadcaster, and to reinstate the 15 days that it currently proposes to scrap from 2010. More details
