With several racecourse surfaces in Guyana being deluged this year with heavy rains forcing frequent race meet cancellations the question is could proactive measures in track maintenance avoid lost racing dates?
Perhaps the answer is yes. With money currently being an issue the answer is probably no. However if money was not an issue racecourses could afford necessary equipment to prevent these washouts.
At present Guyana is getting substantial financial support from the Chinese government. Perhaps the newly appointed Interim Management Committee (IMC) body staff could look into tapping in to these newly generous resources. Also there is a heavy hitter in Guyana by the name of Mr. Bishwa Panday. He is CEO of the P&P Insurance Brokers.
Assistance could be provided by Mr. Panday as he has reportedly gone on record as saying his company has an all round commitment to assist in community, social and sports activities. Mr. Panday is a sports enthusiast and a long serving sports administrator. Mr Panday said that his company will always assist in worthwhile ventures and stated that it is part of his company’s goal in giving back to the community from where they garner their support.
With that said here is a video package that addresses the situation of preventing cancelled race cards.
