Bookie calls end to betting meets

BETTING meetings at the Gympie Racecourse will end after March 10.

Bookmaker Noel Nelson indicated at last weeks betting meeting that he would field only at Gympie race meetings in future.

The on-course TAB agency will continue to operate on the remaining betting meetings.

Due to the loss of several big punters in recent times, Noel said that betting turnover had decreased significantly making fielding in future no longer viable from a business point of view.

Noel, his wife Jan and staff have been operating at betting meetings for about 10 years as part of a 30 year association with Gympie racing.
