[racenet]http://www.racenet.com.au/news/289/Queensland_training_tracks_may_reopen_tomorrow.asp[/racenet]Queensland training tracks may reopen tomorrow

Monday, 27 August 2007


Queensland Racing remains in lockdown mode with borders closed but race clubs can from tomorrow apply to reopen training facilities from 1pm.

Reid Sanders, QR chief steward, said on TVN this evening that race clubs state-wide can apply to QR to reopen training facilities but strict conditions apply.

These include that every horse must be logged on when going on to the track and then logged off when work is completed.

Staff and trackwork riders will not be permitted to work at different venues.

Also, there will be no floating of horses to tracks.

If a track is given the all-clear to allow trackwork, trainers must then apply to QR for a permit for horses to be worked.

Reid reiterated that no thoroughbreds in Queensland had shown clinical signs of EI.

“There is going to be some short-term pain for stakeholders but with a lot of longterm gain,” Sanders said.

In Queensland, the floating of a horse carries a massive $150,000 fine and two years imprisonment.

Up early every morning Westie ;)

The latest News is Queensland trainers will be able to work their horses as of tommorrow , some strict stipulations will apply.

All freelance trackwork riders will have to affiliate themselves with just the one complex, and will not be allowed to ride trackwork outside that complex

Will be no racing till at least after this weekend Diddles , depending what happens between now and then i guess.

I think if there are no more reported cases of EI infections outside of the current quarantined area's in the next 5 days, then we are hopefully out of the woods  :/

But if new cases are reported outside of  these quarantined area's in the next 5 days we are all in a lot of strife, as it will be alot harder to track down all the horse;s that could have been infected , and who they could possibly infected .... the domino effect will be catastrophic  :(

i don't understand  why they are thinking about racing and trackwork, if this virus spreads so quickly! i know no racehorses have the virus  but i thought they would let it burn it self out  (if that is possible i don't know that much about it), it only takes one idiot to do the wrong thing and it could spread to racehorses. as a money point of view we need them to race but if the horses contract the virus we don't get paid anyway, i would rather a month than three.

Racing recommences in Queensland

Following this morning’s announcement that racing will recommence in Queensland from Wednesday 5 September 2007 with the conduct of two restricted access race meetings, please find listed below information relating to the approved meetings.

The two TAB meetings currently approved by the Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries (DPI) will be conducted at the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast on Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

These meetings are restricted to horses stabled within the defined precincts and essential raceday personnel only.   There will be no public or owner access to the course on the day.

To ensure stakeholders are fully abreast of the restrictions in place for these meetings, Queensland Racing will conduct information sessions at the Gold Coast Turf Club and Sunshine Coast Turf Club on Saturday 1 September 2007.  The following schedule will apply for the conduct of these sessions:

Gold Coast Turf Club – Saturday 1 September

  • Race Club Officials – 8.00am
  • Trainers – 8.30am

Sunshine Coast Turf Club – Saturday 1 September

  • Race Club Officials – 8.30am
  • Trainers – 9.00am

Unfortunately, even though Queensland Racing utilised survey results in the compilation of the following race programs, it has been difficult to cater for the available horse population within one race meeting.  As such, Queensland Racing has programmed broadly and stakeholders will be required to move throughout the classes to find suitable distance races.

We were supposed to be going back to the track tomorrow, but because of the break out at Rosehill, I doubt it will be before the next vaccination shot. Half our main grass has been ripped up anyways  :look: Extending the straight and moving the crossing I think  ::)

Magic....They think Toowoomba may have it results were due late last night or this morning,a breeder who goes to Clifford Park regularly went to NSW to visit stallions for his mares so may have bought it back with him,apparently the track was opened on Sat for swimming use then suddenly this problem. ::)

Surely not  >:(

If that is the case how stupid can some people be ?

And seriously why would he be looking for stallions for his broadmares anyway, they won't be getting served this year  :/

I certainly hope this isn't the truth , because it doesn't give the human race much chance of saving itself with stupidity like that  ;(

Confirmed EI virus has hit Toowoomba,such a shame when they were all doing their best to keep it out,funny everything was fine untill they allowed movement of mares.
I'ts about time the DPI stops what seems to be a cover up as no one is advised on suspected outbreaks,I would say that is the end for the Darling Downs this year.ggggrrrrr >:(

Obviously no one has heard of the outbreak at Glenlogan. This spells the end of any thought of containment yet the DPI continues to play God.

Thats great news Bollie , you would think the Sunny Coast would be in the same boat as the Goldy so fingers crossed that we are back working them by Wednesday.

Any Qld jockeys/track riders/stablehands affected by EI are eligible for this....
On Friday the State Government announced a $20 million dollar assistance package for the industry. There is a $5 million dollar allocation as a personal support and hardship fund, where people can apply for one-off payments of $155 for individuals and $725 per family. Application for these funds can be made by calling 13 25 23 or by attending at 15 Hercules Road, Hamilton between 10am and 4pm. Details on the other components of the scheme, namely an up to $5000 business interest subsidy and $5 million allocation for skills retention are not yet known.
I copied it from Qld Racing, hope thats allowed  :embarrassed:
