THE man who transformed greyhound racing in Ireland during his time as head of the Greyhound Board in Limerick has set his sights on the purchase of Wimbledon Stadium.

Dublin businessman Paschal Taggart, synonymous with the sport across the pond, instigated the re-vamping of many Irish tracks and also substantially increased prizemoney to a level which has mostly been maintained to this day.

And how refreshing to see a would-be promoter with the interests of owners and trainers at heart. Commenting on his Wimbledon ambitions, Taggart said: “In the longer term all trainers and owners would be far better off than they are now.”
