Chairman's Report with Peter Tighe - August

This week’s announcement of our new commercial partnership with Queensland based bookmaker CrossBet is a win for owners on a number of different fronts.

We are delighted to be partnering with an emerging local company with strong Queensland connections and one that is eager to support the Queensland racing industry and owners in particular.

It is also fantastic to see that CrossBet are determined to work with us on ways in which we can provide the best possible offering for Queensland owners moving forward.

This is not just restricted to offers surrounding the racing industry either but also experiences across other sports too.

Like any partnership though, we need to support CrossBet as much as they are supporting us. So we encourage all members to get behind CrossBet along the way.

We are proud to be partnering with CrossBet and look forward to the future.

Please see below the official media release for more information on our new partnership.


The Queensland Thoroughbred Owners Association (QTOA) is excited to announce a major commercial partnership with emerging Queensland wagering provider CrossBet.

The partnership will see QTOA members benefit from exclusive offers and sporting experiences through CrossBet’s partnership network which includes the PGA of Australia and Queensland Reds.

QTOA Chief Executive Officer Ben Mannion said it was fantastic to have CrossBet backing Queensland owners.

“We always wanted to seek a partner that was willing and excited to work with us on providing benefits and offers for our owners,” said Mannion.

“CrossBet is an up and coming Queensland based business and we’re really excited about what this new partnership will bring.”

“It’s fantastic to have this type of commercial support for the future of the QTOA so we can continue advocating for our members.”

CrossBet Chief Executive officer Scott Cross said the business was delighted to be supporting racing in Queensland through the QTOA.

“As a proud Queensland business, we are excited to partner with the QTOA in order to support and deliver real value to Owners,” said Cross.

“As an owner of Thoroughbred Horses in Queensland myself, I know there is a need to support the industry and in particular the owners. We are looking forward to working together to enhance the ownership experience for Queenslanders”
