Jockey Subsidies For Tasmanian Riders
The Tasmanian Thoroughbred Racing Council announced a series of initiatives to assist jockeys & apprentices "with the rising costs of travel & to encourage the required number of riders to participate at Tasmanian race meetings". From November 1, the TTRC will provide subsidies for jockeys & apprentices riding at Tasmanian race meetings, Tasmanian-based riders will be eligible for a petrol subsidy & interstate riders will be eligible for an airfare subsidy (based on the total number of rides per race meeting).
