And they're off

I don't mind having a public holiday in March, and I guess the horse race is just a peg to hang it on. But I am yet to be convinced that the horse racing industry is such a huge contributor to the State's economy.
What's more, although we are told it represents a whole pile of direct and indirect jobs I am yet to be convinced. So what is it that allows it to exercise such influence in the great halls of power.

I would like someone to show us the figures
