RWWA encourages participation in the racing industry via attractive stakes levels and a fair return on investment for active participants, making racing great. Strategic plans also focus on encouraging racing as a career of choice industry; increasing on-course attendance rates and attracting a wider racing clientele.
Reputation and performance are key elements of judging the quality of product emanating from a State's racing industry. Western Australia adheres to best practice initiatives in relation to integrity and welfare and strategic plans focus on determining breeding standard opportunities and benchmarks. The breeding incentive schemes differ markedly across the codes and as such, each are reviewed independently. The volume of racing at optimal levels will assist in determining a more attractive product and the maintenance of structured industry training and accreditation programs for participants will further enhance WA's racing reputation.
RWWA currently maintains active consultation with stakeholders on funding issues and will continue to encourage active participation in industry decision making and strategic direction. With the publication of RWWA’s strategic plans, the organisation is well positioned to continue to engage with stakeholders, seeking their input and feedback into the shaping of the industry’s strategic direction going forward.
Each racing code’s strategic plans have been formulated as a blueprint for sustainability, ensuring ongoing sustainability of the industry into the future. From identifying and building on the WA racing industry's strengths and adapting to a changing economic climate, RWWA is committed to addressing the need for greater certainty. The dynamic balance required to maximise returns and minimise costs is reflected in RWWA’s Distribution Model, which sees money made from the TAB’s wagering activities given back to WA’s racing participant clubs across the state.
