SA Jumps Racing To Continue

Friday, 2nd December 2016

Thoroughbred Racing SA (TRSA) says it welcomes Wednesday's announcement by the Parliamentary Select Committee recommending that jumps racing should continue in South Australia. "There can be a great deal of emotion at certain times around jumps racing and the Committee's process ensured everyone had the chance to consider the facts in a measured and evidentiary way," said TRSA Chair, Frances Nelson. "While we are yet to review all aspects of the Committee's Report, most of the recommendations are already in place or are being reviewed. The result is very good for the industry and for the breeders, owners, trainers and jockeys who invest so much care, time and energy into their horses." She added: "While tabling various recommendations, it is also a strong vote of confidence in the rigorous approach to safety taken by Thoroughbred Racing SA stewards and our clubs."
