Facilities need improving
I read Pat Smullen's comments about Killarney and what was on offer in the weighroom there during the week and having been lucky enough to have ridden around the world I would still say that our facilities are very lacklustre and the food on offer still hasn't got to where it should be.
The racecourses are getting huge amounts out of media rights and to think that they can't even subsidise something like €500 worth of adequate food for the jockeys canteen.
Jockeys are happy to pay for food once it is adequate and you can't eat much because your busy or maybe doing light but you like to get something little and often or maybe for the way home. It beggars belief.
