Thermal cameras will be used to scan the crowds allowed to watch the Royal Randwick at the suburban racecourse this weekend. They allow for temperatures to be checked from a safe distance in the ongoing battle against the novel coronavirus COVID-19 as spectators who had purchased Hospitality Packages are allowed to return.
Owners have been allowed back on courses in a limited form in New South Wales since the first week of June and Victoria follows suit on Monday. Australian Turf Club Chief Executive Officer Jamie Barkley has stated that his organisation is delighted to be the first to start welcoming customers back as the tracks get up and running on a national level. He let it be known that the ATC not only continues to fully abide by Government Public Health Orders but has even implemented extra measures. This includes cutting-edge thermal imaging cameras designed to reveal heightened temperatures.
Meanwhile, the Melbourne Racing Club is working through the arrangements it’s made with Racing Victoria to welcome horse owners back to Sandown next Wednesday. They will do so once more three days later in Caulfield. MRC Chief Executive Josh Blanksby has said that spectators returning to the track is a very positive sign and he hopes that members and racing lovers will follow suit sooner rather than later.
Blansksby said that owners will need confirmed acceptances if they want to attend next week’s Sandown meeting or the Caulfield Winter Race Day on June the 27th.
