"Everyone in the racing family at Thoroughbred Park is deeply affected by Riharna’s accident."

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

The Rev Colin Watts will lead prayers for Riharna in the Mounting Yard at 1pm on Sunday prior to the first race.
