Racing Queensland website to offer punters free replays of races
PUNTERS will be able to gain free online access to thoroughbred race replays on all Queensland races from November.
Racing Queensland are building a website which will have the capacity to show replays when it is launched in the next two months.
Victoria launched its multi-million dollar portal racing.com last week, where visitors can view free replays of all Victorian races. Customers previously had to subscribe to TVN or Racing Network to view the replays.
Queensland vision is contracted to Sky, who offer replays to tab.com.au customers or at a fee for others through the Sky Media Centre.
RQ are negotiating an agreement with Sky to stream the vision to customers for free.
Thoroughbreds have been lagging behind the other two codes, with free vision readily available for harness and greyhound racing.
Greyhound replays are available through thedogs.com.au, while harness replays can be found at racingqueensland.com.au.
Thriving international centres Hong Kong and Singapore have long used free vision as a key means of attracting domestic and international wagering to their racing.
