Racing NSW - Benchmark Programming and Handicapping
Second Appraisal and Review
Six month period, 1 November 2010 – 30 April 2011
Call for submissions
The new benchmark programming and handicapping model was introduced in October 2009. As per its commitment at the time of launching, Racing NSW conducted a comprehensive review of the new and innovative system in 2010.
After considering industry feedback and consultation some enhancements were made to the system which took effect 1 November 2010.
At the time of announcing these changes, Racing NSW committed to conducting a six-month review of the overall system including the changes introduced.
The sixth month period ended on 30 April 2011, and Racing NSW is now conducting the review.
Submissions are invited from industry participants, both individuals and groups. Responses will also be sought from the NSW Trainers, Jockeys and Owners Association on behalf of their members.
