Just Racing - Racing Industry Queensland     Trading Net Australia - a Brisbane, Queensland based business, is proud to be involved in the promotion of the Queensland Racing Industry, and sincerely thanks all participants who have a vision of the future, in seeing Internet advertising as an invaluable, promotional tool for themselves or their business. The site you are entering is representative of Trading Net Australia's professionalism in placing small and large business and industry - and now the Queensland Racing Industry - on the Internet, exposing them to a world-wide audience.  It is without question, that the latter years of the twentieth century and the early years of the twenty-first century, will see Racing beamed into homes via our televisions with Metropolitan Night Racing gaining acceptance and recognition. It is of paramount importance therefore, that the Industry is geared to embrace the enormous benefits that go with such revolutionary advancement.  The Racing Industry, encompassing the three codes of Thoroughbreds, Harness Racing and Greyhounds, represents the fourth largest employer in Australia, and thus is of enormous national significance to the current economic status of the Country. Through the myriad of facets which combine to form the Racing Industry, $$$billions are invested and speculated annually. As with any entity involving gambling, Luck and Chance are major players. The Australian population love to gamble, but the ever increasing competition for the gambling dollar means that the Racing Industry needs to be more dynamic and effective than ever in its marketing strategies, to increase or at least maintain its share of the gambling dollar.  The somewhat apathy of Racing officialdom in the last 15 years in marketing its product effectively, has led to falling Racetrack attendances, and allowed young people to seek out other forms of entertainment which have been strategically targeted towards them as "action packed" and exciting. What could be more "action packed" and exciting than Racing? Please continue on and view what is fervently believed to be the most professional and comprehensive Racing Internet site in Australia today.

The Australian Racing and Breeding Homepage     Let's talk about my interest in horses. I was probably "bitten" at age 12 when I laid odds on the Melbourne Cup in 1984. But it wasn't until I was 16 that I really got into it and soon developed a passion for the thoroughbred. Initially much of the interest was betting driven but with that developed a fascination for the horse as well as it's bloodlines. I still love a bet but it is in breeding that I see my future, or at least want my future to be.  Being reasonably patriotic I would like to see the quality of thoroughbred in Australia reach a standard where it is the equal of any in the world. I have no doubt that great Australian horses can match it with their counterparts from anywhere in the world but it is the depth that is lacking. Also, the fascination with speed and quick returns on investments must have a detrimental effect of developing the classic horse which is still what should be aspired to. English racing also interests me greatly mainly because that is where it all started and I am totally in love with their racecourses. I still see their racing as the most important in the world. All you Americans reading this must be disagreeing. Well I do like American racing and it is no doubt very significant in a world perspective but there are aspects that bother me. I find the style of racing where one goes hard from the outset very unattractive and I "hate" dirt racing. But the thing that bothers me most are the drug rules with respect to substances such as Lasix and Bute. I don't pretend to be a genius on this subject and would like feedback from anybody with a bone to chew. With respect to Australia, the most important racing nations are in South East Asia. There is a very big export market to Malaysia and Singapore as well as Hong Kong and China promises much in the near future. Interest from these regions is integral to the prospering of the breed, especially here.
