HRSA CEO, John Lewis stated "that this is a significant announcement for the harness racing industry in South Australia, which will create significant wagering interest, and be a great fillip for our code."
Mr Lewis also stated that "this is one of the most exciting and positive wagering announcements for many years, and follows considerable lobbying by HRSA over many years to secure an enhanced fixed price wagering service".
"In particular, we are also extremely appreciative of the commitment to this initiative from Tattsbet management including Tattsbet CEO, Robbie Cooke, who is clearly demonstrating an increased commitment to generating wagering growth."
Mr Lewis further stated that 'the timing of this announcement was ideal leading into the "Summer of Racing" for harness racing in South Australia, including the $125,000 Betezy SA Cup to be held on Saturday 11 January 2014."
Tattsbet have also advised that they intend to expand the fixed price wagering service to include Friday night Harness Racing by March 2014, with further possible expansion to occur later in 2014.
