Race Caller

A Race Caller is responsible for the "calling" of races and trials. Race Callers are employed by the relevant Principal Racing Authority (PRA), radio or television stations.  In order to be a Race Caller you will need to have a clear voice and very good eyesight. A Race Caller needs to remember the names and colours of up to 24 runners in a race in Australia so they generally have a strong natural aptitude for the role.
The role of a modern Race Caller extends beyond calling a race. They will have media training and a strong understanding or form, jockeys and trainers. They will be required to give their previews for the meeting on radio or television prior to the race meetings being run.
