Trackside's website says it "combines the excitement and bet types of thoroughbred and greyhound racing with the simplicity and payout characteristics of a number of games such as Keno".

The discussion paper makes it clear that allowing any potential TAB buyer the right to offer such products would require legislative change. McGowan 'playing politics' with gambling rules WA Nationals MP Colin Holt said he supported the move but was quick to point out it was in stark contrast to Premier Mark McGowan's position when in opposition. When the ABC revealed in 2016 the previous Barnett government was considering allowing a gaming machine expansion, including electronic horse racing as part of a potential TAB sale, Mr McGowan was highly critical. "All that will mean, is more people will pour their money into those machines, … particularly those on pensions, and those who can least afford it, will lose money," Mr McGowan said at the time. "It brings some of those social ills, in particular gambling addictions and the like that we've seen in New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland now for decades to Western Australia. "It is a very, very disturbing development and I oppose it absolutely." Mr Holt, who was the racing and gaming minister in 2016, said it was the height of hypocrisy for Mr McGowan to now have changed his mind. He claimed Mr McGowan's decision to "play politics" with a potential TAB sale when he was opposition leader had likely delayed the sale and all the while the state asset had lost value and therefore cost taxpayers money.
