Friday, 3rd July 2020

Meanwhile, in Sydney, racingnsw.com.au reports, general admission customers will be admitted in larger numbers at Royal Randwick this Saturday as the Australian Turf Club continues to welcome back crowds under the NSW Government’s latest Public Health Order. Patrons must book tickets online at the TheRaces.com.au and register their details ahead of Saturday’s meeting at Royal Randwick. Group bookings are permitted but all patrons will be required to follow social distancing protocols and will need to remain seated except when placing a bet or ordering food and beverage products on course, or when visiting bathrooms. Public seating will be available within the Queen Elizabeth II Grandstand and in designated outdoor areas trackside during races. All patrons along with all racing participants will be temperature tested on arrival with the use of state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras installed by the Australian Turf Club. Executive General Manager Member & Customer Experience, Jane Coles, said Saturday was another important step in hosting crowds back on track. NSW Racing Minister, Kevin Anderson, said the return of more spectators was great news for racing enthusiasts across the state.“Racing has been the unsung hero of COVID-19 in NSW, supporting thousands of jobs during this difficult time,” Anderson said. “It’s great that we’re now able to welcome spectators back to tracks, with sensible physical distancing in place.”
