All clubs agreed to work together to promote and foster the industry at all levels and in all areas of SA.  Particular focus centred around the critical role each individual club has in spreading the message of harness racing; on the sharing of ideas; and how clubs can diversify their revenue streams in today’s competitive operating environment. Discussion also ensued on the club’s requirements from HRSA and the role the governing body needs to play in regulating the industry in the state.In a first for some time, all South Australian harness racing clubs, this week, came together and met with representatives of the Board of HRSA to discuss growing harness racing throughout the state.

All clubs were firmly of the view that joint clubs meeting is a great platform from which the industry can plan and grow.

The next consultation meeting will be with the other industry stakeholders before all parties meet together to build the future strategy of Harness Racing in SA.

Chairman of HRSA George Fiacchi commented: “There was an overwhelming feeling of positivity in the room and a strong desire to work together to promote and grow Harness Racing. The sharing of ideas was the highlight with so much great work already happening at a club level. I’m looking forward to this continuing on a regular basis.”
