Horse Racing/scope in future.


hello sir, is thoroughbred racing a popular sport in AUSTRALIA? does Australian racing has good scope in future?

Hi Rohit,
         Thoroughbred racing is the most popular sport in Australia. It is a multi billion dollar industry and is a very large employer. They have the second richest race in the world, The Emirates Melbourne Cup raced i early November for a stake of over AU$6.5m.

The futre of racing in Australia is very positive.

Merry Christmas,

All aspects of the thoroughbred breeding and racing industry in New Zealand. I race thoroughbreds and have been the Marketing Manager for three NZ racing clubs. If I don`t know the answer to your question I know someone who does!


20 years in the racing industry. Currently focusing on breeding but involved in all aspects of the industry. Ive raced several thoroughbreds with modest success and have had great fun out of it.
