Dubbo Local Government Area

Following the lockdown orders imposed by the NSW Government in relation to the Dubbo Local Government Area (LGA) that will commence from 1pm today for a period of 7 days as advised by NSW Health, HRNSW advises the following:

Stay at home orders will apply to all people who reside in the Dubbo LGA or have been there on or after Sunday 1 August 2021.

Licensed participants residing in the Dubbo LGA are now subject to the same stay at home rules and restrictions previously imposed on Greater Sydney and other regional areas including Armidale and Tamworth.

Those licensed participants MUST remain within the lockdown zone unless NSW Government exemptions apply.

Licensed participants who enter the lockdown zone at any time are reminded that they MUST comply with NSW Government Health Orders once they leave the lockdown zone.

Trainers located within the lockdown zone will be unable to nominate horses for any race meetings or trials outside of the Dubbo LGA until the NSW Government lockdown restrictions are removed.

Trials have been suspended during the lockdown period at Dubbo Paceway.
 
Any person wishing to make enquiries should contact HRNSW Stewards on 9722 6655.

Participants are reminded of Australian Harness Racing Rule 238:

AHRR 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 the harness racing industry.

HRNSW management reminds all industry participants of the available industry support program.
