Vic Jumps Racing Offered "Potential Lifeline"

Thursday, 3rd December 2009

In Victoria, jumps racing “is poised to get a potential lifeline after a dramatic day of talks”, reported The Herald-Sun. It ended with racing industry shareholders “agreeing to a resolution to be put to Racing Victoria today”. A proposal from RV was tabled at a meeting in Richmond last night of key industry shareholders, the 3 Melbourne metropolitan race clubs, Country Racing Victoria, owners, trainers, jockeys, breeders & unions “placing conditions on a continuation of jumps racing post-2010”. Shareholders met for over 2 hours to debate the proposal “which has been brokered in part by Melbourne Racing Club vice-chairman Mike Symons”. Australian Jumps Racing Association president Rodney Rae “will negotiate further with RV chief executive Rob Hines this morning, with a possible announcement this afternoon at the RV annual general meeting at Yarra Valley”.
