Min Says Vic Govt "Accepts Jumps Decision"
Victorian Racing Minister Rob Hulls said the state government “accepted the decision” taken by Racing Victoria as “the independent body that controls racing in Victoria” & noted it came “after a comprehensive review of jumps racing that showed the jumps racing industry was becoming unsustainable”. Hulls added: “The RV board has been best placed to review jumps racing & take into account the views from all sides of the debate. It has made a decision that is designed to ensure the ongoing viability of the entire racing industry, including protecting the health & welfare of jockeys & horses.”
