Limiting potential exposure to Covid-19 for participants and staff who are critical to conducting a race meeting is a prudent measure designed to ensure racing can continue to operate.
Importantly, racing at Ladbrokes Pioneer Park is uninterrupted with prizemoney in excess of $1.1 million to be won from April 11 to May 3. This ensures financial support continues for owners, trainers, jockeys, strappers, farriers and families to ensure thoroughbred racing continues with our magnificent backdrop. The thrill of backing an Alice winner can continue via the broadcast on Sky Racing.
The timing for the ASTC will unfortunately see the cancellation of social events during the Ladbrokes Cup Carnival. Whilst it does disrupt the track side enjoyment of racing for our members, sponsors and the public, these are obviously necessary measures in difficult times, and we thank you for understanding.
We have already commenced planning for the 2021 Carnival culminating on Ladbrokes Cup Day, Sunday May 2 2021.
