Randwick declared a hot spot from COVID so the races transferred to Rosehill today what does it mean for those in the Randwick area for the two weeks of the lockdown .
V'Landys was in Brisbane on footie bizness earlier this week flew home to beat the deadline.

Looks like bizness as usual apart from masks and social distancing .

Randwick to carry load in lockdown

RAY THOMAS

RANDWICK will be Sydney’s only operational racecourse during the August Covid crackdown, with Rosehill, Canterbury and Warwick Farm closed for race meetings.

Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club needed to revise the August racing schedule as the three racetracks are in local government areas now designated lockdown zones.

This leaves only Randwick able to host race meetings in the metropolitan area for the next four weeks,

The first meetings of the 2021-22 season required venue changes, starting with Canterbury next Wednesday, which has been shifted to Randwick’s Kensington track.

The first Saturday race day of the new season, the Group 2 Missile Stakes meeting on August 7, has been moved from Rosehill to Randwick.

The scheduled Randwick meeting on August 14 has been moved to Kembla Grange.

This will give the Randwick course proper some respite before the first Group 1 of the new season, the Winx Stakes, at the track on August 21.

With Kembla Grange now the Sydney Saturday fixture on August 14, Goulburn will host the provincial meeting.

Newcastle will host the August 11 meeting instead of Kensington and the scheduled Canterbury August 18 meeting is now on Kensington.

Racing NSW chief steward Marc Van Gestel said the racing industry was doing what was necessary to continue through the Covid outbreak.

“Essentially we can’t race at Rosehill, Warwick Farm and Canterbury during August,’’ Van Gestel said.

“Fortunately there weren’t too many Saturday meetings set down for Rosehill next month so we are using Randwick and Kensington.

“Kembla Grange is in the greater Sydney region so we can utilise that racetrack.’’

Van Gestel said the Newcastle race day on August 11 would retain metropolitan status and prizemoney but Sydney jockeys could not ride as they were confined to the Greater Sydney area.

Warwick Farm trainer John Sharah has been suspended for nine months after pleading guilty to two conduct charges issued against him relating to a positive Covid-19 test.

Sharah was charged with “conduct prejudicial to the interests of racing” for breaching Racing NSW Covid-19 protocols and policies by attending trackwork on July 29 after displaying Covid-19 like symptoms.

He was also charged with a “breach of Racing NSW policy” for not self-isolating and awaiting his test results after having a Covid-19 test.

Evidence taken during the inquiry established that Sharah was tested for Covid-19 on July 29 after displaying Covid-19 like symptoms the day prior.

His horses were located in the Campbelltown Local Government Area (LGA) which had been placed into lockdown on July 28.

On July 30, Sharah again attended Warwick Farm racecourse for trackwork. Later that day he was “advised by NSW Health that his Covid-19 test had returned positive to Covid-19”.

The trainer “immediately contacted Racing NSW to advise of the test result and identified racing industry participants with whom he had been in close contact”.

When handing down the penalty stewards’ noted Sharah’s conduct had the potential “to compromise continuance of the NSW thoroughbred racing during the COVID-19 pandemic”.

Stewards issued 12-month penalties on both charges, ruling they be served concurrently before reducing the penalty to nine months, factoring in Sharah’s “guilty plea and mitigating factors”.

Sharah’s suspension commenced on August 16 and he is free to resume his training career on May 16.

Randwick trainers John Thompson and Craig Carmody will be forced to front a stewards’ hearing next week after both were charged with serious breaches of Covid-19 protocols.
Racing NSW stewards have ordered both to front a hearing on Tuesday afternoon after they were each issued two charges at an inquiry on Friday.
Stewards issued a charge under AR228 (a) for conduct prejudicial to the image and/or interests of racing as well as slapping the duo with a second charge of AR233 (a) for breaching policy of a Principal Racing Authority.
The charges were issued after stewards discovered both trainers reside in a local government area of concern and had been leaving the area to attend trackwork and race meetings outside of that region, breaching Racing NSW Covid policies and NSW Health orders when doing so.
 
Trainer Craig Carmody.
Multiple suburbs around Sydney remain under even stricter stay-at-home orders as the state continues to grapple with a worsening Covid outbreak.
A majority of racing participants who live in affected suburbs have moved addresses over the past two months and quarantined to continue working in the industry.
Neither Thompson or Carmody did so.
It is alleged that Thompson and Carmody attended Randwick racecourse between 2 August 2021 and 7 September 2021 to attend their stables and complete trackwork.
Thompson, who trained Chat to victory in Saturday’s Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes, was also found to have attended two meetings at Randwick on August 21 and September 4.
Carmody was found to have attended several meetings throughout July and August at multiple tracks around NSW.
The hearing of the charges is set to be conducted at 5pm on Tuesday.

NSW stewards fined both trainers $18,750................extract report John Thompson ...Penalty  Stewards considered the following matters in respect to penalty.    1. Guilty Plea at earliest opportunity and contrition displayed. 2. Personal and professional circumstances.  3. Good record. 4. Stewards were satisfied that the breaches were not intentional breaches or a wilful disregard to the policies. Further that Mr Thompson had failed to act diligently by informing himself of the policies set by Racing NSW and NSW Health Orders.  5. Stewards were also satisfied that Mr Thompson genuinely believed that he was complying with Racing NSW Policies and NSW Health Orders as he was undertaking regular Covid-19 tests (as required for authorised workers) and obtaining Government travel permits. 6. Principles applied by Stewards when issuing penalties as a protective order. 7. Relevant circumstances of this case.  Stewards determined that the appropriate penalty for each offence was a fine of  $25,000 reduced to $18,750 for Mr Thompson’s guilty plea. Having regard to the principles of totality, considering both charges were for the same conduct, Stewards determined that the total fine issued to Mr Thompson be $18,750. 


Same for Carmody
