It's Why We Race

A message from Tasracing, on behalf of over 5,000 Tasmanians employed directly and indirectly by racing.

Racing has been part of Tasmanian life for well over 150 years. We’re proud of our racing history, and what racing means for our future.

5,000 Tasmanians are employed directly and indirectly in racing, one of the world’s oldest pursuits.

Ours is a pursuit unlike any other. It is a pursuit that harnesses and rewards the love, care and awe we have for our animals that are among the fastest species on Earth. It is equal part obsession for the racing animal, sport, business and life-blood of regional communities.

It’s why we race.
