Abstract

Racing (thoroughbred, harness, and greyhound) brings many visitors and economic and social benefits to regional areas in Australia. Many casual gamblers, however, have little knowledge of racing and of the fundamental rules that underpin its various forms (which, while reasonably consistent across both location and type, do differ in some respects). In this article, we describe a decision support system designed to assist and educate novice punters. A motive underpinning this research was a desire to produce a tool that might assist visitors wishing to experience the Australian provincial racing circuit to get the most out of their involvement.
