Owners to remain locked out of Swan Hill races

Nearly 50 owners who registered to attend Monday’s race meeting at Swan Hill will be denied entry after Racing Victoria announced it would defer a decision on owners returning to the track.

The racing industry was preparing to open the gates for owners from Monday, but a spike in coronavirus positives in Victoria has forced Racing Victoria to rethink its position.

A return to the racetrack for owners has been delayed.

A further 45 owners who registered to attend Tuesday’s Ballarat meeting will be notified by Monday evening whether they’ll be able to attend.

“This is a dynamic situation and the circumstances around COVID-19 cases and transmission are different in Victoria to other states,” Racing Victoria chief executive Giles Thompson said.
