ABOUT US

QRISP is always looking for ways to help thoroughbred racing industry people throughout Queensland, not just when there is a desperate need.  Boosting morale and enhancing the well-being of our people is also one of our goals, encouraging them to enjoy things aways from racing for both themselves and their families.

 

Keep an eye on our website for upcoming events and activities, and for more information about how we can help, please see our menu options.  Suggestions and ideas are also always welcome via our 'CONTACT US' link below.

Jockey Availability

QRISP continues to find ways to support our Industry. The Jockey Availability Table, created and maintained by QRISP, goes a long way to address one of the biggest concerns facing our industry - jockey shortages.  Trainers have asked for easy access to information about jockey's riding location, phone number and minimum riding weight.  The Jockey Availability Table assists in making this information available for all jockeys who have registered their details, at the click of a button.  Jockeys, this page also has important details about how to register and update you details.

See the Jockey Availability Page on this site (link also below) for more details.  

Mental Health Support Programs

Unfortunately racing industry participants are not immune to mental health challenges. However, many of you may not be aware there are dedicated Mental Health Support Programs in place to offer racing industry participants access to free and confidential counselling and mental health supports.  Please take a look at the new QRISP Mental Health Support page (via the menu or button below), to see details of what is offered and how to access these supports. 

Caloundra Unit - Weekly Holiday Letting

QRISP owns and operates a fantastic 2-bedroom holiday unit at Caloundra.  This unit is available for all thoroughbred racing industry participants to book, not just those needing assistance.  Our unit is available for everyone to have the opportunity of a beach getaway.

 

The unit is able to be booked for weekly stays (except during the Christmas/New Year and Easter holiday periods), by thoroughbred racing industry participants to use with their families.  The cost to stay at the unit for thoroughbred racing industry participants is at a hugely discounted rate of just $300/wk (usually approx $1600 per week).  

Please click on the Caloundra Holiday Unit button below, for further details including checking availability and how to book.  

A huge thankyou to our supporters
