3 September 2021 Race Meeting to be Abandoned with TAB Federal moved to Queanbeyan

The Canberra Racing Club wishes to advise that the TAB Federal Benchmark 75 1000m due on the race meeting of 3 September 2021 will be transferred to Queanbeyan on Monday 6 September 2021. 

The remainder of the races scheduled for 3 September 2021 meeting will be abandoned. Due to the on-going COVID-19 restrictions in the ACT, the Club has been unable to acquire an exemption for NSW Jockeys to ride at Thoroughbred Park and therefore have insufficient riders to run a race meeting. This meeting was unable to be transferred in full to Queanbeyan due to the close proximity to the existing meeting at Queanbeyan. 

Should the current COVID-19 restrictions in the ACT remain in place the next meeting of the Canberra Racing Club, scheduled for 17 September 2021 will be transferred to NSW and run in full. 

Club officials will continue to work diligently with all stakeholders including ACT Health, Racing NSW, Queanbeyan Racing Club and ACT participants.
