About This Report


Horseraces and greyhound races are fixtures of Australia's sporting culture and the Melbourne Cup is the highlight of a $1.5 billion industry. However, industry participants have faced challenges over the past five years. Stagnant racing attendances and rising interest in alternative forms of gambling have affected industry players over this period. Racegoers have tended to splash out at marquee events during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, such as the Melbourne Cup. However, ticket sales and revenue from non-event based thoroughbred, harness and greyhound races have declined.

Companies in the industry administer horse and dog racing activities, or operate horse and dog racing venues. Firms that operate horseracing stables or dog racing kennels, own racehorses or greyhounds, or provide related training services are also included in the industry.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
