Racing NSW closes doors to events

This Saturday's $3.5 million Golden Slipper horserace at Rosehill Gardens in Western Sydney will be run behind closed doors as Racing NSW places restrictions on public attendees.

The horse racing authority has imposed a uniform response to all thoroughbred race meetings, barrier trials and trackwork in NSW, meaning any horse race in the state is closed to the public effective immediately.

No on-course wagering facilities will be available and all essential personnel will be required to leave the racecourse after their horses have run.

Because of coronavirus concerns Racing NSW has also abandoned a number of race meetings including the Ardlethan picnic meeting and Trangie race meeting on Saturday 21 March, the Tullibigeal picnic meeting on Saturday 28 March, and the Cootamundra picnic meeting on Saturday 4 April.
