The Brand Agency has launched the first major campaign for The Races WA.
The Races WA is a newly developed brand within Racing and Wagering WA (RWWA) supporting the thirty-seven race clubs across Western Australia.
To launch the brand, The Brand Agency developed the ‘Life’s Better With Horses’ campaign to remind millennials of the magic of the races.
The campaign will kick off in regional areas this month across both digital and traditional media channels and will air in the metro area in April in the lead-up to the Autumn Racing Carnival.
The campaign launches with three TVCs showcasing different scenarios where life is made better with horses.
This fully integrated campaign will run across regional TV, cinema, digital video, digital display, press, social channels including Snapchat and Tinder, OOH and search.
RWWA manager, marketing and content, Katie Roberts said: “With 37 thoroughbred race clubs across Western Australia and one of the biggest country racing precincts in the world, we are committed to supporting and implementing initiatives to ensure a sustainable future for racing in the State.”
Roberts added: “The campaign tag-line ‘life’s better with horses’ can be applied across multiple initiatives and is versatile for all race clubs, making it a powerful marketing tool to drive greater on-course attendance and engagement in both the metropolitan and regional areas.”
Creative director Dean Hunt added: “Put added horse into a social situation and the atmosphere is instantly charged.
“This super simple campaign was brought to life wonderfully with the help of our fantastic internal team, legendary production partners and the delightful clients at RWWA, who gave us all the freedom, support and collaboration we needed to get it up to speed.
“Life’s better with horses. See you at the races!”
