Vale Miss Riharna Thomson

Canberra Racing Club is deeply saddened to advise that Riharna Thomson passed away this morning from injuries sustained in a tragic accident on Tuesday morning whilst riding a horse in trackwork at Thoroughbred Park.

Riharna, 22, was a dedicated track rider, rising early every morning to ride work and was recently promoted to the position of Stable Foreman of the Keith Dryden-Scott Collings training partnership. Riharna was a young and enthusiastic horse lover who was well respected and loved among the local stable fraternity.

"Our thoughts are with Riharna’s family and friends during this difficult time. Her family requests that their privacy be respected at this sad time," said CRC's CEO, Peter Stubbs. "Everyone in the racing family at Thoroughbred Park is deeply affected by Riharna’s passing."

Club employees and stable staff are receiving support and have been offered counselling services locally by Rev Steven Prior and with the assistance of Racing NSW Pastor, Rev Colin Watts, and through the Racing NSW Racing Mates Assistance Program.

A ceremony to honour the memory of Riharna will be held in the Mounting Yard at Thoroughbred Park at 1pm on Sunday prior to the first race on Black Opal Stakes Day. Arrangements for the funeral in Tamworth are yet to be announced.
