Mr. Oakley commended Mr. Samuel on developing a vast base of information, knowledge, and especially contacts that he expects to enable the Company to be a successful player in the Brazilian turf industry, as well as in the other portions of the wagering market that TrackBets may explore. Mr. Oakley also complimented TrackBets on its recently established contacts in laying the groundwork to host wagering on Brazilian horse racing in the U.S. and Europe.
