In a move that’s taken inspiration from the success of T20 cricket Racing Victoria is looking at putting racing on a diet.

Chief executive Rob Hines is looking at trying to find space for a condensed race program somewhere on the already hectic calendar.

He said the reason for this was about specifically targeting the 18-35 age group which at the moment may be put off by the seven hours the average meeting takes to complete.

“The length of time an average race day takes with 40-minute gaps is just too long,” Hines said.

Rather than creating a whole new card Hines has picked out night racing at Moonee Valley and Cranbourne as the best avenues for experimentation.

“With less congestion of (racing) product that is going to be our laboratory for trying new things and trying to attract new people,” Hines said.

“We will be looking to build on the success of Moonee Valley. We’re not going to try for a revamp of every race day, but with a consistent night season we have a real opportunity to innovate.”

Moonee Valley has already had success running events 30 minutes apart and Hines believes that may be as close as they can get.

“We’ve proven with Moonee Valley nights we can run races at 30-minute intervals and I think that is as short as we will be about to go,” he said.

The plan would be to drop to the same spacing throughout the week with a small concessions for Saturdays.

“We would like to be able to do 30 minutes on other weekdays, but Saturdays are always going to be an issue.

“Our next step is to get to 35-minute gaps.”

He says key to any success though would be the cooperation of the other states.

RVL went solo with a trial of 30 minute gaps on a Tuesday meet but turnover dropped due to clashes with races in other states.

As a result Hines feels this need to be a national conversation and one that includes the major broadcasters.

“The co-ordinating body is Sky and they have many obligations and not all of them are thoroughbred,” Hines said.

“We’re trying to find a position – 35 minutes – where other states will agree so we can give the punter evenly spaced racing.

“It is a complex issue and we have to take it in small steps, but we have shown with night racing at Moonee Valley that 30-minute gaps work well and we will have 30 minutes between races when Cranbourne starts racing under lights.”

    I wish to show some thanks to you just for bailing me out of this incident. As a result of scouting throughout the the net and finding recommendations that were not helpful, I assumed my life was gone. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the problems you’ve sorted out all through this article is a crucial case, as well as those which may have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not discovered your site. Your ability and kindness in playing with a lot of things was valuable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a step like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the expert and effective guide. I will not hesitate to suggest your web site to anyone who should have assistance about this issue.

    Humans have maintained populations of useful animals around their positions of habitat since pre-historic times. They have deliberately fed dogs seen useful, while disregarding or killing others, thereby founding a relationship between humans and targeted types of dog over thousands of years. Over these millennia, domesticated dogs have developed into distinct types, or groups , such as livestock shielder dogs.
