What the Jockeys said: Eagle Farm Barrier Trials

Some of Queensland's newest jockeys have given their say on the Eagle Farm racing surface following this morning's first official barrier trials. 

Dale Smith, who recently relocated to Queensland from Victoria and Mark Du Plessis, who has ridden at tracks across the globe, were full of praise for the new surface.

Racing Queensland has since confirmed racing will return to the track on Saturday, December 22, following consultation with QRIC Stewards and Stakeholders.
