Betting approved for Marree "picnic" race meeting—11 June 2016

10 June 2016

On 30 May 2016, the Authority formally approved the taking of bets by licensed bookmakers on the picnic race meeting being held at Marree on 11 June 2016. The notice was published in today's Government Gazette (and is available from the gazetted instruments page).

As the Marree Picnic Race Club is not a licensed racing club, special contingency approval is required to allow betting on this traditional activity. The contingencies are not approved for Ubet or authoirsed interstate betting operators and, in practice, betting will be limited to a bookmaker at the racecourse.
