ON A MISSION TO DELIVER THE WORLD’S BEST INDEPENDENT HORSE RACING NEWS

INDEPENDENT HORSE RACING NEWS

Established in 2022, Asian Racing Report is a multi-language independent horse racing news website.

Asian Racing Report’s editorial independence relies on its adherence to a set of editorial principles that have been formulated by its team of journalists. These guidelines can be found here.

Asian Racing Report’s Chinese language content is written directly in Traditional Chinese, rather than being translated from English.

Australian-owned, Asian Racing Report has positioned itself as an impartial observer of thoroughbred racing across the globe, applying particular focus to the racing jurisdictions of Australia, Japan and Hong Kong.

Asian Racing Report does not receive money or endorsements from bookmakers or betting agencies, nor directly from principal racing authorities or governing bodies.

MEET THE TEAM

Asian Racing Report has assembled a core team of experienced journalists and contributors, united by a shared passion for horse racing, a professional commitment to excellence and an appreciation of the value of independent journalism.

While the business is operated out of Australia, we have key members of our team based across Asia and around the world.

In a global industry, we seek to provide a global perspective, with experience and understanding not only of the various facets of the racing industry, but also of the racing culture that exists in various jurisdictions across Asia and Australia.
