Members of the Australian Turf Club can return to the track and attend Rosehill Gardens this Saturday for the first time since the start of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.
Members will have received an email from the Australian Turf Club today with information on how to pre-register, purchase dining and hospitality packages and book reserved seating to comply with the current NSW Government Public Health Order.
Hospitality packages are available in the renowned Winning Post Restaurant as well as the popular TJ’s Champagne Bar and will allow ATC Members to remain at Rosehill Gardens for the entire raceday.
Owners with runners at this Saturday’s Winter Cup Day will also be able to attend if they pre-register online. All Members and owners who pre-register online are able to nominate one guest each to attend this Saturday.
All patrons will be monitored by state-of-the-art thermal imaging cameras which take body temperatures as part of the Australian Turf Club’s extensive health measures for racing participants, patrons and staff.
Australian Turf Club Chief Executive, Jamie Barkley, said the return of Members to the track was the latest step in welcoming more patrons back to Saturday racedays: “We are delighted to welcome Australian Turf Club Members back to the track at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday,” Mr Barkley said.
“Members are the lifeblood of our Club and it has been a priority of the Australian Turf Club management and staff to welcome them back safely on course. We look forward to providing Members with our award-winning service and hospitality under best-practice health and safety measures.
“While it is not quite the same experience Members may be used to as we strictly adhere to the NSW Government Public Health Order, it will give them a raceday experience that can’t be matched at home or on TV.”
The Rosehill Gardens track was rated a Heavy 9 on Thursday morning following a further 24.5mm of rain over the past seven days. The Listed $150,000 TAB Winter Cup is the feature race on Saturday, headed in TAB Fixed Odds markets by noted wet track runner Wu Gok ($2.50) for champion Sydney trainer Chris Waller and jockey Adam Hyeronimus.
Stablemates The Lord Mayor for jockey Hugh Bowman ($3.90) and Yulong Prince and jockey James McDonald ($4) are next in betting.
