Warwick Farm trainers can continue to nominate their horses for race meetings on the condition they do not use staff who reside in the above three LGA’s to accompany the horses. Staff outside these LGA’s may accompany the horses.

The new NSW Government Health order allows persons living in the LGA’s to attend Warwick Farm on animal welfare grounds, which includes feeding and exercising of horses.

Accordingly, participants whose place of residence is in the Liverpool LGA (which includes Warwick Farm) may continue to attend Warwick Farm racecourse and stables on animal welfare grounds as described above.

Participants whose place of residence is in the Canterbury-Bankstown LGA may attend Warwick Farm racecourse and stables on animal welfare grounds on the condition they provide Racing NSW with a negative COVID test before attending Warwick Farm and further negative tests every 3 days thereafter.

However due to the high infection rate in the Fairfield LGA, participants whose place of residence is in the Fairfield LGA are now not permitted to attend Warwick Farm or any other NSW racecourse or licensed premises (stables) until further notice.

Importantly please also note, participants whose place of residence is in Canterbury-Bankstown or Liverpool LGA’s are not permitted to attend any other NSW racecourse or stables (other than Warwick Farm) without the approval of Racing NSW.
