Gloucester Park Harness Racing (GPHR) today officially launched its revamped website
www.gloucesterpark.com.au with the new feature of internet videos called GPTV.
GPTV will feature interviews leading into Gloucester Park meetings which are aimed at
giving punters as much information as possible as well as promoting the local industry events.
“The face of media is changing everyday” said GPHR CEO Michael Radley
“Online presence has become more and more critical to reaching our audience, but you also
need to have the right content with up to date and useful information”.
Radley is most excited about the internet TV section of the website, a first for WA harness
“TrotsTV was a great initiative by Harness Racing NSW and others states have followed suit
with similar formats. To start with GPTV will be kept fairly simple with interviews and
previews of selected events. The interviews will also be played on our new big screen on race
nights for on-course punters.
“The plan is to develop GPTV over time to have feature reports and even panel shows.”
WA’s top racing media personality, Wes Cameron, will be the inaugural presenter of GPTV,
conducting interviews in his own unique style.
The debut interviews for GPTV are with champion trainer Gary Hall Sr, firstly regarding the
next goals of his champion pacer Im Themightyquinn, including Monday’s Pinjarra Cup and a
Queensland campaign. Hall also discusses his strong hand in the $25,000 Pure Steel Final at
Gloucester Park on Friday night. In-form trainer Michael Brennan speaks about his chances at
Friday night’s Gloucester Park meeting and we chat with Kristy Sheehy, the Garrards Horse
& Hound Junior Concession Driver series winner, about her trip to Sydney to represent WA
in the 2014 NSW Rising Stars Series.

“Western Australia is lucky to have someone as knowledgeable and passionate about the sport
as Wes, he is one of a number of talented media identities that we plan to utilise. My hope is
to also develop on-air talent, as there are currently a number of up and coming race callers,
journalists and form experts here in the West.
“Gloucester Park is also looking at developing other new technologies to promote not only the
club, but also harness racing in general”.
