Racing Information Services (RISE) wish to advise the Trading Ring Section of www.harness.org.au will be cease operation on October 31 2019.
After reviewing the Trading Ring, RISE has decided that providing this service is no longer viable due to a number of factors, including those outlined below:
• The Trading Ring is non-core business for RISE
• RISE staff are required to review and approve ads to ensure they meeting the rules of racing and legislative requirements
• Recent legal threats received by RISE in relation to third party ad listings
• The software is due for upgrade and current volume does not justify time and cost to redevelop software platform
RISE wishes to thank our users for their support of this service over many years.
We trust that a 30 day run off period will give the harness racing community an opportunity to transition to other solutions.
