Sir Snob Geldof fans (if there are any) take note: it has come to light that not only does he watch dog racing, he even owns a share in a greyhound racetrack. Wonder if he knows that over 1,000 dogs were killed or put down with injury in Greyhound racing last year in UK and Ireland?
Disappointment has been widely expressed after a photograph emerged showing Bob Geldof at a greyhound track presenting an award.
The photo appeared in the Racing Post’s “Off the Leash” column along with a report which revealed that Geldof owns a share in a racing greyhound track
The report stated: “Central Park [in Kent] was graced by a visit from Sir Bob Geldof last Sunday [16 December 2018]. Er, yes, really. He was there to see Tony Collett’s Professor Gimlet in whom he has a share, in action. Geldof duly presented the trophy for the race…but it was to the Paul Philpott-trained Alarming Hades and not his own hound, who had to settle for third.”
