THE National Horseracing Authority (NHA) confirmed that on Monday, 2 September 2019, an exciting advance in Racing Control technology was launched, which is vital to maintaining the highest levels of integrity in the sport of horse racing in Southern Africa.

This technology has been termed a “Virtual Boardroom” and is a facility which enables Officials based at the Head Office to have real-time and review access to the live video patrol footage of any race meeting countrywide and to actively participate as members of a Stipendiary Board at the race meeting.

The facility will also be used for training purposes and to bolster the respective Stipendiary Boards.
