HRV Stewards will continue to take a hardened approach regarding any person who breaches the following directions and requirements, which are in place to protect the health and wellbeing of all persons involved in the harness racing industry.
This industry notice is a timely reminder of the current protocols in place and these requirements apply to all race meetings and trials conducted in Victoria.
HRV Stewards inform all industry participants and stakeholders that the following requirements must be adhered to at all Victorian race meetings and trials:
All persons are advised that should they fail to comply with these requirements significant penalties, including periods of disqualification, may be imposed under AHRR 238.
AHRR 238 states:
238. A person shall not fail to comply with any order, direction or requirement of the Controlling Body or the Stewards relating to harness racing or to the harness racing industry.
These measures have been put in place to ensure that harness racing complies with all bio-security requirements and must be followed to ensure that Harness Racing in Victoria continues under the current State Government restrictions. Your cooperation will assist us all to continue racing for as long as possible as any breach may place in jeopardy the future of racing in this state.
