Immediate End To Jumps Racings In Tasmania

Monday, 30th April 2007

The Tasmanian Thoroughbred Racing Council announced it will "cease to program Jumps Racing in Tasmania effective immediately". TTRC chief executive Rohan Mitchell noted: "The costs associated with conducting jumps racing in Tasmania are significant & participation has been declining over the years to a point where we are dependant upon mainland involvement for horses, jockeys, trainers & infrastructure. The funding presently allocated for jumps racing will be re-focused to flat racing, where we are experiencing flourishing growth."
