Greg Nichols, Racing Australia’s Chairman, has announced an expansion of the myhorseracing.horse online portal first launched in 2019 for racehorse owners to incorporate online tools for trainers to replace the current Stable Assist online service.
“Stable Assist was first launched 15 years ago and is used by over 75% of trainers nationally to lodge racing-related transactions online," Mr Nichols said.
"This is a significant advancement for trainers with Stable Assist now integrated into the new myhorseracing.horse online portal," Mr Nichols said.
Later this week selected trainers nationally will be invited to participate in a live pilot to provide Racing Australia feedback on the new Stable Assist within myhorseracing.horse.
Following an assessment of the feedback in August, trainers nationally will be contacted inviting them to validate their myhorseracing.horse accounts. For trainers who are also owners and have already validated a myhorseracing.horse account and have been issued with an RA ID, the one RA ID will enable access to all owner and trainer-related functions.
“The addition of trainers to the myhorseracing.horse portal forms part of Racing Australia’s ongoing investment and strategy began when myhorseracing.horse was first launched last year for owners.
"The addition of trainers is the next step with breeders to also shortly benefit from enhanced integrated services on the one national myhorseracing.horse portal," said Myles Foreman Operations CEO (Acting CEO) Racing Australia.
During the period of transition, the existing Stable Assist will continue to operate while trainers move across to the new Stable Assist in myhorseracing.horse.
The Racing Australia Service Centre will provide transitional support to trainers. The phone service, still used by 25% of trainers, will continue to operate but with myhorseracing.horse it is now even easier and more convenient to transact online.
Trainers will be contacted directly by Racing Australia and provided with further information on this exciting advancement.
