Racing Industry Transition Agency 

The Racing Industry Transition Agency (RITA) was appointed by Racing Minister Rt. Hon. Winston Peters on 1 July 2019 to enable the urgent changes required to drive the racing industry toward a financially sustainable future.

Through the Racing Reform Act, RITA has a legislative mandate to manage the changes needed to revitalise the racing industry and carry out the day to day functions of the TAB and Trackside.
