Randwick Owners First Allowed Back at Track
Owners with runners at Saturday’s Royal Randwick meeting who pre-register with the Australian Turf Club will be permitted on track to watch their horses run under the first phase of a return of spectators to Sydney racing, reports racingnsw.com.au. All owners of horses at Saturday’s meeting will be invited to attend under strict NSW Government Public Health Orders which outline new protocols and procedures at Sydney racecourses. Racehorse owners will also be given the first opportunity to purchase special sit-down dining and hospitality packages which will allow those patrons to attend all races this Saturday, 6 June. Those owners who do not wish to purchase sit-down dining will be provided with a designated area where they can watch their horses race and then leave the designated area and the racecourse to provide capacity for owners with horses in later races. The Public Health Orders require all pre-booked seating and hospitality numbers to be capped at 50 people per dining area, with bookings for this Saturday taken on a “first in” basis. The Australian Turf Club will install two body temperature thermal imaging cameras to monitor the temperature of patrons as they enter Royal Randwick on Saturday.
