HRNSW will return to the regionalisation of racing from midnight on Sunday 19 July 2020 as a precautionary measure and to facilitate the continuation of harness racing in NSW.

 

HRNSW is extremely mindful of the impact that the return to regionalisation will have upon individual participants, however, this precautionary measure is once again being adopted to protect the NSW harness racing industry and the livelihood of participants.

 

Harness racing will continue under the current biosecurity protocols and NSW will be once again split into four recognised regions based upon the boundaries which are applied for the purposes of the NSW Breeders Challenge- Metropolitan, Northern, Western and Southern.

 

HRNSW will continue to monitor the advice of the NSW Government and NSW Health.

 

HRNSW will remove regionalisation at an appropriate time when there is no apparent threat to the industry at large.

 

The transport of horses across regions will once again require approval from HRNSW Stewards following the submission of a transport application form.
