Will it be Wren's day at Canberra on Friday

Will it be Wren’s day at Canberra on Friday ?

Despite the COVID-19 non-patron race day protocols in place, the eyes of people around the nation and indeed the world will be on Thoroughbred Park via Sky Channel on Friday 24 April. The Canberra Racing Club is delighted with the 103 acceptances taken for the seven races for the meeting. Full fields are the order of the day with a further 10 horses balloted from the program, the meeting has proved highly popular for the 52 Trainers with runners engaged.

Changes to TAB Federal Prize Money at Thoroughbred Park
The Canberra Racing Club has maintained business continuity through the continuation of patron free race meetings at Thoroughbred Park which also remains as a viable Training Centre. These aims have been achieved whilst protecting the health and safety of Staff and Racing Industry Participants whilst engaging in best practices to minimise the spread of COVID-19 within the community.

Flu Vaccinations

Today 87 people at Thoroughbred Park were provided the Influenza Vaccine in the interest of minimising illness and the impact on health services in the coming months. The Canberra Racing Club arranged this on behalf of the staff of the Club and also provided the opportunity for tenants and the stables within Thoroughbred Park. This initiative was directly implemented to assist The Club’s main aim during the COVID 19 crisis to protect the health and safety of our Staff and Racing Industry participants.

*RACE 1 @ 2.10pm XXXX GOLD PLATE (1300m) - Maiden, Set Weights & apprentices can claim):


We start with a fairly even-rated Maiden at set weights. Consistent 3YO Hawkesbury gelding 4. UPRISE (Brad Widdup/Chad Lever 58.5kg) looks ready to break through. Has been placed in four of his last five, and can be ridden a little quieter here getting back on to the bigger track.


The Show Goes On

It will be far from a regular race day this Friday at Thoroughbred Park. The global COVID-19 pandemic means that racing around the country will be held behind closed doors for the foreseeable future. It is not all doom and gloom though, with a fantastic card being assembled for Canberra’s first meeting since an immensely successful Canberra Carnival in early March.
