Engaging with the Government as a Stakeholder

February 21, 2020

The government is a key stakeholder in racing’s development and operations. From wagering to welfare, taxation to town planning, sponsorship to simulcasting, and from data protection to disciplinary systems, racing must engage and work with government for the betterment of our sport.
