Racing Queensland chairman, Steve Wilson AM, was high in his praise of industry stakeholders who continue to so strongly support the industry navigate extraordinarily difficult times.
“The Queensland racing industry has done a phenomenal job banding together during this period,” Mr Wilson said.
“The establishment of designated racing regions, and the strict biosecurity measures that we have adopted, has required large-scale changes to our day-to-day operations.
“This is reflective of the Queensland community more broadly and is necessary to ensure the continuation of racing during this unprecedented crisis.
“These are tough times and we must make a collective sacrifice. By programming selected features, we are able to provide enhanced opportunities for our Queensland participants who are navigating this turbulent period.”
Additionally, RQ has advised it will allow conditional greyhound movement across designated zones for the purposes of racing from Tuesday, April 14.
