  • Racing at Warwick Farm was called off mid-meeting

In the statement from RV, the person in question has shown no signs off ill health but had potentially been in contact with somebody who has the virus in recent days.

Additionally, today's NSW meeting at Warwick Farm was also cut short as a precautionary measure after the participant in Victoria had "recently competed in Sydney".

Racing has been temporarily suspended in the Australian state of Victoria until at least Friday while a participant is tested for Covid-19.

The participant - reportedly a Victorian jockey that attended last Saturday's Golden Slipper meeting - has been advised that a passenger on a commercial flight he caught on March 12 has since tested positive to COVID-19.

"As a result of the protocols we've got in place have had to kick in and we've abandoned this afternoon's meeting at Sandown (Hillside) after Race 2 and abandoned tomorrow's meetings at Kilmore and Pakenham".

Thompson said RV only learned of the potential exposure to the disease on Wednesday afternoon but the participant involved acted according to the protocol introduced by Racing Victoria.

Wednesday's meetings at Ascot in Perth and Launceston were also abandoned.

"QRIC Stewards became aware today, that a New South Wales harness driver who had driven at Penrith on Thursday night and Bathurst on Friday night had been in contact with a person who is now awaiting test results for the Covid-19 virus".

"As my superiors have said, the health and safety of our riders in paramount".

RV chief executive, Giles Thompson, said the licensed person did the right thing by contacting them as soon as they were told of their situation.

Racing in Victoria has been operated on closed tracks, with essential participants allowed, but only after being temperature checked and passing strict guidelines surrounding travel and social interactions.

If the test comes back negative, RV ensures that racing will resume on Friday.
