Due to the current Covid 19 Pandemic, although Thoroughbred Racing has been permitted to continue in Australia, Arabian Racing has been suspended.
Strict protocols have been introduced to allow Thoroughbred Racing to continue. These include no public or owners in attendance at race meetings, trials etc, limited media in attendance, reduced fields, social distancing of jockeys etc, only one trainer from a stable permitted to attend trials/race meetings, adjusting the barriers to allow extra distance between horses and jockeys, strict hygiene procedures, temperature checking etc, including at trackwork.
Arabian Racing is not expected to resume in Australia before early 2021. However, as restrictions differ from State to State this expected timeframe may change in some States.
