Racing Queensland Relaxes Racing Zone Rules Effective May 4

TAREN POINT, New South Wales – Racing Queensland has confirmed that they are easing the racing regions restrictions valid Monday, May 4. The group relayed that their announcement of the limited consolidation of the racing zones would facilitate conditional horse racing participant movement during race days. The alterations apply to those currently assigned to the Metro South West and Metro North areas, according to the news by Australian horse racing news and information portal Racenet.

Humans such as strappers and racehorse trainers would now be able to change locations with their racehorse. Furthermore, jockeys and racehorses from different places would stay in separate housing during matches. Meanwhile, any licensed competition participant who is not directly involved in a horse race would remain restricted from taking part in the sporting event, as per a spokesperson from Racing Queensland. Based on the report by Australian horse betting news and tips website JustHorseRacing.com.au, this regulation pertains to the existing rules that limit horse racing participants to their assigned place outside of the race meeting, including jump-outs, trials, and trackwork.

In late March, Racing Queensland introduced the metropolitan racing zones in the Australian state. The organisation designated the areas to help fight any dissemination of the coronavirus. The constraints involved humans limited to their zones, while racehorses could get transferred between racing regions. Moreover, previously, a racehorse trainer desiring to engage a sporting horse in a competition located in a racing zone other than his own needed to entrust his charge to a representative of that racing region.

Racing Queensland affirmed that the limitations on movement continue to be a subject of much controversy. The group pointed out that this reality comes with the racing sector of the Australian state nearly entering its eighth week under stringent biosecurity protocols. Racing Queensland said that they could not hasten this procedure. Plus, they remarked that they could take small yet gradual measures to diminish the limits through the implementation of a staged reaction.
