Warwick Farm Races Cancelled

Wednesday, 15th July 2020

Due to a swathe of COVID-19 cases that are linked to Casula’s Crossroads Hotel in the greater Liverpool region of Sydney, dailytelegraph.com.au has reported the cancellation of Warwick Farm racing for Wednesday. That follows an unprecedented decision by Racing NSW to call the meeting off rather than potentially risk the continuity of the industry which has been able to keep racing since the start of the coronavirus. Marc van Gestel, chief steward of Racing NSW, explained the thought-process behind the decision: “The location of Warwick Farm is part of the Liverpool city shire that has been deemed to be high risk. We believed the best decision was to abandon the meeting and not compromise the rest of the industry by having participants going out there to the races.” A decision on what will happen to the next scheduled Warwick Farm meeting is (July 29) will be made in due course.
