Offset sulkies now banned

1 September 2020

QRIC Stewards remind all industry stakeholders that effective 1 September 2020, all offset sulkies are banned from use.

The ban follows a five-year phasing out period.

The use of a modified offset sulky will not be permitted and action under the Australian Harness Racing Rules (AHRR) will be taken against individuals who use or attempt to use a sulky which has not been approved by Harness Racing Australia (HRA).

Trainers are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure that their sulky is both approved and has been tagged by Stewards.
