Vic Minister Napthine Supports Jumps Racing
Meanwhile Victorian Racing Minister Denis Napthine confirmed his support for the jumps & declared: "I think it has an important place in the history of racing & heritage, and it's important for jobs in the racing industry, important for jobs in south-west Victoria, particularly the May racing carnival in Warrnambool. I believe we need to give jumps racing a chance to get into its season, so that the sport can be monitored & see the benefits that the sport delivers. I think we need to give jumps racing a chance, rather than going off prematurely on this case (the Casa Boy fatality)."
