Hello Vets,

In the Bleat this week;

•  ACT Lockdown

•  Racing this Week

Ian Morton

ACT Lockdown

The current lockdown is scheduled to end on 2nd September. This would allow this weekend’s race to proceed.

Given the current case numbers, it seems highly likely that the lockdown will be extended and that we will be forced to cancel the race.

Please check the RMS and The Bleat for any updates.
