Future Outlook For Harness Industry

Harness & Greyhounds

edited September 8 Harness & Greyhounds

Some of the feedback coming out of the Harness Outreach Sessions paints a disturbing picture with overall share of harness turnover plunging below 12 % and return on dollar invested falling from an already worrying 48 cents in the dollar to a disastrous 42 cents in the dollar. Perhaps RWWA and new appointee Cammeron Brown may care to obtain a copy of the WACHRA Submission presented to both the Minister and Shadow Minister. Clearly, the current business model has been an abject failure and history shows that previous rationalisation decisions have been detrimental to Industry growth with all indicators clearly in decline. It seems the metrocentric driven agenda proposed by some influential figures cannot stop the Industry from disappearing into the abyss after falling off the proverbial cliff. Time for some major changes of direction from our esteemed administrators before it is all over red rover. "Growing the Industry by reducing the footprint" clearly won't cut the mustard.

    Just out of interest - seeing this is the Harness and Greyhound forum - 

    But i wonder how the WA Greyhound industry is travelling - performing - re their financial viability - and whether the participants are happy and making a living out of it 

    And how they are performing re Nationally - compared to the other states 

    Basically nil posters here re the Greys - and you basically never hear or read anything about it - good or bad
