The Australian Racing Board today released the tenth edition of the Australian Racing Fact Book, its annual reference guide to the Australian thoroughbred racing industry.

“There is a consistently high level of demand for records relating to the health and performance of the industry. Since first being published in 1999, and with this the 10th edition, our objective for the Fact Book has been to provide the best way to reference key racing industry data” Australian Racing Board Chairman, Bob Pearson, said today.

“In providing a statistical and pictorial account of the past racing season the Fact Book gives us the chance to look back on the many great achievements both on and off the racetrack, while the inclusion this year of greater trend analysis will assist decision makers to shape the future direction of the industry”.

The 2007/08 edition assembles a range of useful facts and figures as a handy guide to any person seeking information on major aspects of the industry, and highlights the impact of Equine Influenza.

• Racing – A total of 2,302 race meetings were conducted in Australia during the 2007/2008 season, some 389 less than the previous season. This resulted in 17,211 races being run during the season, down by 2,334 on last season.

• Betting – Wagering turnover on thoroughbred racing during 2007/08 decreased by 1.6% on the previous year to $12.64 billion. New South Wales remained Australia's leading wagering jurisdiction accounting for 27.7% of total thoroughbred wagering turnover.

• Prizemoney – Total prizemoney during 2007/08 amounted to $355 million, whilst the total returns to owners were over $430 million.

• Breeding – There were 29,075 mares returned, resulting in 17,818 live foals (61.3%)

• Sales – 4,903 yearlings went under the hammer for a gross of $372,003,961. The highest selling yearling at an Australian public auction for this season was a Redoute’s Choice - Salameh colt sold at the William Inglis & Son Easter yearling sale for $2.7 million.

• Ownership – Sole ownership still remains the most popular form of ownership with over 5,291 horses registered this year with one owner.

Copies of the Fact Book can be requested by email from the Australian Racing Board racingassist@australian-racing.net.au or Download here

Shocked it wasn't delayed as bad as last year.

And the 1st thing I noticed was the text size was too small.

Making it impossible for me to read.

When the facts are that bad, just put everything in fine print.

Table 78 of the Fact Book shows WA figures.

The Internet growth is incredibly spectacular!

So if anyone was wondering where all that Tote Tasmania money has gone to after their collapse, the (maybe partial) answer is:

It's gone West!

Off you go, Bascoe!

How brain dead is Tabcorp to let this keep happening!

How no criminal proceedings from the Tasmania fiasco eventuated, eludes me.

But here we have another bunch of deranged morons trying to send the State of Excitement Tote into a State of Insolvency.

Who in their right mind would buy this fubar!

In between catching up SBS news ( catching up with news on Trump ) and watching the ODI in Brisbane I had a quick look at the WA turnover on trifectas on the first three races at the Cranbourne races this evening. I would presume there would be little interest in WA on a Victorian Provincial meeting on a Friday night, however as jfc has already brought to my attention I am amazed at the WA turnover into the merged Tabcorp trifecta pools
Race 1:Gross pool $25,610 .WA turnover $8,264 = 32 % of pool
Race 2:Gross pool $27,901 WA turnover $9,581 = 34% of pool
Race 3:Gross pool $36,894 WA turnover $12,234 = 33% of pool
It cannot be coincidental that the WA percentage contribution into those pools are little different which indicates someone, somewhere is betting proportionally large amounts through the WA TAB into those pools. I cannot accept that 33% of a pool on a Victorian provincial meeting is bet by run of the mill punters in WA.

Bubba,

In Table 83 the overall Trifecta figures appear more dramatic.

370.57 WA
438.08 Vic

i.e. a 45.83% share to WA.

That figure does not include whatever NZ's contribution is.

But note that WA Trifecta Turnover nearly matches that of Queensland + SA combined!

Looks like this is another something rotten in the State of Excitement.

Now, as to those 3 Cranbourne races, the Victorian contributions we

R1: 56%
R2: 51%
R3: 51%

So you can infer the NZ contribution.

Tabcorp refuses to disclose its On Course figures in its ASX reports, but the FactBook kinda' contains those details.

162.56 NSW
137.47 Vic
2.16 ACT

302.19 Tabcorp

But the previous year figure is:

408.18 Tabcorp

Curiously Tabcorp just reported the Other Turnover for H1 dropped only $20 million.

Surprising figures for me were the tables on page 64-66 which gives the total thoroughbred wagering figures per state.

Victoria and Queensland went backwards in 2015/2016 whereas the NT went from 140.7 million in 2014/15 to 5.281 billion in 2015/16!!

Does this mean people are migrating to the Territory for the purposes of wagering   :lol:

Initial assessments from the latest Fact Book-

Totes declined 5% and it's just a question of when they'll implode. The Premium Players with their Kickbacks contribute ~20% and with a declining total the situation is unsustainable.

Despite TABs' retail monopoly, in Racing Corporates have now caught up and continue with low double-digit growth.

Sports grew 16% and are the big star. Now 14% higher than TAB Racing.
