COVID 19.......Update

Due to the current Covid 19 Pandemic, although Thoroughbred Racing has been permitted to continue in Australia, Arabian Racing has been suspended. 


Most States have now relaxed some of the strict protocols that had been introduced to allow Thoroughbred Racing to continue. The public and owners may now attend race meetings, trials etc,  however only limited numbers of patrons may attend.  As an example, Flemington Racecourse in Victoria will allow up to 15,000. This may sound like a large number but it should be remembered that Flemington can accommodate 100,000 racegoers.  To allow for greater flexibility of movement two separate zones have been introduced with each zone capped at no more than 7,500 people. Patrons will not be required to wear a mask on course, but are encouraged to wear them when they cannot social distance.  Other racecourses have similiar restrictions so advice from the track should be sort prior to going to a race meeting.


Arabian Racing is expected to resume in Australia in August 2021.  However, as restrictions differ from State to State this expected timeframe may change in some States.
