Office of Racing

The Office of Racing is responsible for developing and managing racing governance frameworks, and supporting the growth and economic viability of racing in New South Wales. This includes managing the relationships between the government and responsible bodies for the three racing codes, thoroughbreds (Racing NSW), standardbreds (Harness Racing NSW) and greyhounds (Greyhound Racing NSW and the Greyhound Welfare & Integrity Commission).

Liquor & Gaming NSW is responsible for liquor and gaming regulation. This agency is also responsible for advising the NSW Government on wagering policy, associated legislation, and strategies for reducing the harm associated with problem gambling.
