Lockdown Orders- Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown & Liverpool Local Government Areas.

Following the lockdown orders imposed by the NSW Government in relation to the Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown and Liverpool Local Government Areas (LGA’s), HRNSW advises the following:

The NSW Government Health Order allows licensed participants living in the LGA’s to attend to their horses on animal welfare grounds, which includes the feeding and exercising of horses.

Accordingly, licensed participants who reside in any of those LGA’s may continue to attend their registered stable location, even if located outside of those LGA’s, on animal welfare grounds, on the condition that they provide HRNSW with the result of a negative COVID test every 3 days.

In addition, it should be noted that licensed participants who reside in any of those LGA’s are unable to attend any race meeting or trials.

Trainers who reside within in any of the nominated LGA’s, who have a registered stable location outside of the LGA’s may make application to HRNSW Stewards to nominate an authorised representative to transport and attend to their horses at a race meeting. Those applications should be made by 4pm on the day prior to the race meeting on the following Trainer’s Representative form.

Link to form

The authorised representative nominated by a Trainer will only be approved if they reside outside of the nominated LGA’s.

Any trainer wishing to make application or to make enquiries should contact HRNSW Stewards on 9722 6655.
