Digital makeover for Sydney racecourses

Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens and Royal Randwick racecourses will lead the world in digital racing information and on-course raceday experiences for customers, sponsors and business partners under a major new project.

With Australian Turf Club members and patrons preparing to return on track in coming months, the project provides dynamic up-to-the-minute wagering, racing, tipping and real-time race information for on-course punters on racedays.

The new multi-million dollar technology will feature integrated television systems across both racecourses as well as innovative digital cube displays.

It will include high-impact content to engage and entertain customers at Australian Turf Club racedays and events.

The project is part of a 10-year partnership between the Australian Turf Club and major venue technology experts PMY Group.

This world-class project includes:

  • LED systems stretching 150m along the Rosehill Gardens and Royal Randwick home straights
  • Winning Post LED displays
  • Dynamic LED boards inside the Royal Randwick Theatre Of The Horse
  • High Impact LED Cubes at Royal Randwick
  • Enhanced IPTV and digital stream technology

Australian Turf Club chief executive Jamie Barkley said:

Punters and racing fans at the track will receive the most up-to-date information in a dynamic and unrivalled experience, better than anything you may see at home.

We are delighted to launch this technology at the home of the Longines Golden Slipper at Rosehill Gardens, and as we prepare to unveil more of the project at Royal Randwick.

Punters will get the latest odds, market movers, late mail tips and real-time racing data without moving from their seats or vantage points trackside.

We also look forward to our premium partners and raceday sponsors joining with the many creative options and content opportunities this technology will bring across the racecourses all throughout a day at the track.’

The first phase of the project went live at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday 30 May before a second stage at Royal Randwick in July, 2020.

It features active collaboration with Australian Turf Club commercial partners who can provide new and fully immersive experiences.

The project is also aimed at attracting new brands to the ATC’s partnership portfolio.
