Harness arrival time changes for Qld feature races
After reviewing the integrity settings for Harness racing the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) advises that all Harness runners must arrive on course at least three hours before any Group 1 race across Queensland.
The move designed to enhance integrity measures for Queensland’s feature races follows the successful implementation of the rule in thoroughbred racing on 6 July and the measure commenced at Harness racing events last week.
The new arrival time will operate this Saturday 20 July 2019 for the Blacks A Fake, Queensland Derby and both Triad finals for the two year olds.
The three hour arrival times will be applied to all Group 1 Harness Racing events in future.
Track officials will monitor the arrival of harness runners on race day.
