Power Farming Hawke's Bay Cup

11 April 2020


Racing Industry Update


There have been some developments in the industry due to COVID-19. The NZTR released a policy on 17/3/2020 relating to COVID-19 regulations -


From now until the 13th of April 2020 race meetings have been strictly limited to participants only able to attend. This means only licensed jockeys, trainers, stable staff and club and racing officials are permitted onsite on race day.


Unfortunately, this means we are unable to host any groups in hospitality onsite, or have any of the public attend on Saturday 11 April. I understand that this is very disappointing, but it is important that as a racing Club we abide by the regulations in order to keep our people and the industry safe.


The NZTR will re-assess this on the 13th Of April and further information will be provided. For everything you need to know regarding the racing industry and COVID-19 head to
