Remote race caller strategy to be trialled at Tara Raceway
Thursday, September 12, 2019
When it comes to national racing locations, it’s probably not all that surprising that Mount Gambier is one of the most difficult to access in a convenient and affordable manner and that the cost implications are significant.
As such, Tabcorp has approached Greyhound Racing SA and is seeking its support to undertake a trial of remote race calling of races from Mount Gambier.
GRSA Chief Executive Officer Matt Corby said Tabcorp had been working on a remote race caller strategy that was of acceptable quality and one in which the viewer would not detect any difference.
“It is Tabcorp’s intention to operate a hybrid meeting on Thursday, September 26 wherein they will test the remote system but also have a race caller in place at Tara Raceway,” he said.
“Subject to the outcome of that trial, Tabcorp would then be looking to go to a full remote situation from the following Sunday meeting on September 29.”
