Members’ day cancelled
The Ipswich Turf Club advises that the upcoming Members’ Raceday on April 8 has been cancelled.
This week Racing Queensland advised the ITC that all TAB and non-TAB meetings across the state will be conducted without patrons until further notice.
Following the Federal Government’s advice that all non-essential, organised gatherings of more than 500 people be cancelled to manage the spread of COVID-19, RQ has confirmed that all future meetings – along with trials and trackwork – will be limited to key race-day personnel.
Access will be permitted to licenced participants who have a horse or greyhound engaged at the meeting, along with essential club, QRIC and RQ staff; broadcast services; approved accredited media; and associated staff required to conduct racing activities including veterinarians and ambulance services.
Access will not be permitted to the general public in any code, nor owners or on-course wagering providers.
The ITC will work closely with Racing Queensland to navigate through this period and hope to conduct this event at a suitable time later in the year.
