British Horseracing Authority launches bettor’s forum

23 June 2015

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has launched a new forum in an effort to allow punters in the UK to offer constructive suggestions as to how the sport can develop and change for the benefit of the betting public.

The 'Horseracing Bettors Forum' will deliver proposals and recommendations to both the BHA and BHA Racing Betting Group for developments that would be of benefit to the wider community that wagers on racing in the region.

The new Forum, which will meet on a quarterly basis to discuss topics, will also consider proposals provided by the BHA for feedback on how they would be received by the betting public.

Simon Rowlands, who currently serves as head of research and development for global horseracing data analysts Timeform, will become the first chair of the new Forum on a year-to-year rolling basis.

The Forum will consist of up to eight individuals with a history of interest and involvement in betting on British racing, with the remaining members being appointed by the BHA in consultation with the chair.

The BHA is inviting applications from appropriate individuals that wish to put themselves forward for consideration.

“There are nine million people who bet on British Racing each year,” BHA chief executive Nick Rust said.

“They are an essential part of our sport and as such it is vital that the needs and wishes of those individuals – who are stakeholders in the industry – are properly considered. That is the purpose of this Forum.

“These are important times for the industry as, at the same time as we move closer to signing the Members Agreement which will see the formal tripartite structure between the BHA, Horsemen and Racecourses formalised, the betting public will be given a formal route of communication into the BHA for the first time.

“While the body won’t be representative as such, it will act as a valuable consultative group and be a vehicle by which the betting public can tell us what they want from the sport and advise us on how certain developments may affect them.”

Speaking about his appointment as chair, Rowlands added: “I see the Forum as working towards a better future for bettors on horseracing and for the sport itself – the two need not be mutually exclusive – but it will be concerned with general matters and not with individual disputes.

“The emphasis will be on bringing a fresh and independent approach to the task in hand, and on understanding the needs and wishes of the betting public, rather than on pursuing personal agendas.”

Sounds interesting.

Over the years I have sent many many rants to bookmakers only to get a reply from some jobswoth with insincere apologies.

I too am a bit skeptical about anything being done. Let's hope we're proved wrong.

The one thing about a Forum is that other's will read the posts and if enough say the same thing it may get to the right ears rather than be ignored, but if you don't try then nothing will ever change.
