Racing Forum, who are behind radical proposals to raise levy from bookmakers, are to promote their plans at a dinner at York racecourse on Friday.
The group, supported by owners, trainers, breeders, racecourses, journalists, punters and racegoers, will bring together racing's political leaders with members of the betting industry to put their weight behind their ideas.
The occasion will provide a platform for MP Laurence Robertson, chairman of the All Parliamentary Racing Group, Andy Hornby, chief executive of Coral bookmakers, and Martin Cruddace, Betfair's chief legal and regulatory officer, to put forward their views.
Racing Forum believes the existing levy be abolished as unworkable, unpopular and failing to produce sufficient finance for British Horseracing, which has become uncompetitive while other racing jurisdictions enjoy the benefits of the equivalent of a Tote monopoly.
Racing Forum proposes all licensed betting shops should pay £1 per race, per shop, per annum exclusively, claiming that would raise about £85million from the 8,500 betting shops which show some 9,700 races a year.
That would equate to the equivalent to 11% of gross profit and the fee should be free of VAT, like the current levy, and would be paid monthly, with the aim being to avoid annual lengthy negotiations between racing and bookmakers, which has required Government intervention.
Racing Forum also suggests all off-shore betting operators be levied at 11% of gross profit, the same charge raised from the £1 per race, per shop scheme which would generate a further £20m for racing. This proposal would require Government regulation of off-shore betting operators.
