Tasracing venue bans


TasRacing has today served notices preventing racing venue entry against a number of individuals named in the Murrihy Report with adverse findings.

“I welcome TasRacing’s decision to prevent individuals named in the Murrihy report from entering our venues,” Racing Minister Felix Ellis said.

“Under our new model which abolishes the Office of Racing Integrity, TasRacing will have a much greater role to play in the day-to-day integrity decisions of racing.

“These actions are a clear demonstration that Tasracing is highly capable of this and is taking this new responsibility seriously.

“I have also appreciated their proactive response more broadly, allocating an additional $150,000 to training stewards and $100,000 for RSPCA animal welfare inspections.

“Hearings by the independent panel of stewards will continue to determine broader sanctions and charges as appropriate,” Minister Ellis said.
