RQ statement on Redcliffe Paceway Incident

Racing Queensland has been advised that Workplace Health and Safety Queensland and Queensland Police have commenced an investigation into last night’s incident at the Redcliffe Paceway.

As a result of the ongoing nature of their investigations, RQ Chief Executive Officer Brendan Parnell said there was little further information the organisation could add to what has been released by Queensland Police to date.

“Our utmost concern is for the impacted family,” Mr Parnell said.

“It is imperative that we provide our support to the family, as well as the Redcliffe Harness Racing Club, the QRIC stewards and the other spectators in attendance who have been impacted by this incident.

“As such, Racing Queensland will avail a counselling service for those impacted which we will communicate to the harness racing industry.”

Accordingly, RQ advises that Wednesday’s scheduled meeting at Redcliffe Paceway will be abandoned.
