HRNSW advises that the results of a COVID-19 test taken from a HRNSW Steward have still not been received.

Consequently, HRNSW has determined that the race meetings scheduled for Friday 27 March 2020 will be abandoned.

Nominations are still being taken for other scheduled race meetings and race fields will be drawn up as usual.

HRNSW will provide a further update once the results of the test are known.

 

Harness Racing NSW (HRNSW) is the controlling body for harness racing in New South Wales with responsibility for commercial and regulatory management of the industry including 33 racing clubs across the State.  HRNSW is headed by a Government appointed Board of Directors which is independent of Government.
