Canberra-Trained Horses Ineligible For Highway Races From 9 December 2017

Racing NSW today announced that after Saturday, 2 December 2017, horses trained at Canberra will no longer be eligible to contest Highway races.

In taking this decision, the Board of Racing NSW considered submissions made on the matter by the Canberra Racing Club and other parties.

The view of the Board was that based on the quality of training and other facilities available to them, Canberra trained horses are the equal of NSW provincial trained horses, which are also ineligible for Highway races.

“In announcing its decision, the Board has provided a notice period which will still enable Canberra trained horses to take part in the Highway races for a further three months” said Racing NSW Chief Executive Mr Peter V’landys AM.

“In addition, Canberra trained horses will also be eligible to enter and contest the $200,000 Anniversary Highway to be run at Royal Randwick on Saturday, 14 October 2017.”
