Victorian Racetrack Ban Likely For Idiots

Friday, 17th January 2020

In potentially catastrophic circumstances, two men ran onto the track at Cranbourne Racecourse during the running of a race on Friday night. Despite being brilliantly tackled and held down by a security guard, the main protagonist was freed by one of his cohort, before narrowly avoiding running into the path of the field for the last race as it entered the home straight. According to abc.net.au, Cranbourne Turf Club’s CEO, Neil Bainbridge, will request that the duo, who managed to run away, be banned from all racecourses in Victoria. He said that it was an incredibly rare event, and that he would be following up with the head of the Victorian Jockeys’ Association to “ensure the welfare of the jockeys in the race and discuss their concerns.”
