Dear member,

I am writing to invite you to participate in the 2020 Racing Industry Participants survey, which is commissioned by the Office of the Racing Integrity Commissioner (ORIC). The survey asks for your views regarding integrity in the Victorian racing industry and is being distributed across all racing codes (Thoroughbred, Harness and Greyhound).

We strongly encourage you to complete the survey, as the higher the response rate is, the more representative the results will be of the industry. The findings from this survey will assist ORIC to understand levels of confidence held in the integrity of the Victorian racing industry, identify emerging issues and develop strategies accordingly.

The survey should only take around 5 to 10 minutes to complete. If you are the member of more than one racing body, you may receive more than one email asking you to complete the survey. Please disregard any other emails. Please only complete the one survey.

To ensure the validity of the survey results, ORIC has commissioned ORIMA Research, an independent research company, to conduct the survey.

How to complete the survey:

The following link will allow you to complete the survey online.

The survey will be open until Friday 20 March 2020, and we appreciate your cooperation in completing the survey as soon as possible. 

The information you provide as part of this survey will be used for research purposes only, and results will not identify individual respondents. Participants’ details will not be made known to ORIC.

The Commissioner has undertaken to make the results of the survey known to the racing industry.
