From our 4Racing CEO
Passionate about the horse racing industry, we are a group of highly dynamic and innovative South Africans, ready to go that extra mile to create premium value for our stakeholders. We are ‘for racing’ in every sense, committed to reinvigorating and bringing new life to the industry that we’re so proud to be a part of. This is the foundation on which we have built the 4Racing brand.
We have created 4Racing to reinvent existing business models and industry standards, developing first-class solutions for our customers, partners, employees, and shareholders. We work closely with bookmakers, owners, breeders, trainers, grooms and jockeys, and the various regional and national regulators because we understand that the future of the sport of horse racing is wholly
dependent on co-operation with - and transparency between - all the major stakeholder groups across the industry.
4Racing is proactive and open with the various gambling boards and keep them abreast of the projects, timelines, developments or impediments that impact on our license conditions.
We also constantly seek to develop relationships at a national government level, including the National Gambling boards and the Departments of Trade and Industry, Agriculture and Sport, Art, Culture and Recreation.
When we say we are your partner for reenergising and transforming the industry, we mean it. All aspects of horse racing offer opportunities for social interaction, both in the physical and digital worlds and we believe there are significant opportunities to increase excitement levels across all customer segments and mediums. We will continue to explore not only how to enhance the physical on-track experiences, but how to create digital environments where our customers can build meaningful social connections in the ‘new normal’ that the world of sport has entered.
Please feel free to explore our website and our www.tab4racing app to learn more about who we are and what we do. Get to know us and our services, and let us know what we can do for you.
We look forward to partnering with you.
