If as above happens, that is huge for the likes of the VRC. The four day carnival alone has attendance income that runs into the many millions - just from gate fees. No racing club in NZ will face that level of impact. And unless Australia decide to let the virus runs its course, that scenario is highly likely. Like the issue with the 100th Cox Plate - will they run it this year. They say they don't want to run it if it is behind closed doors. VRC may be looking at the same option, not sure.

Until they find a vaccine I would expect zero socialising zero crowds social distancing  to continue possibly easing on certain restrictions, 

 

Haggas stayer Young??? Is staying in Australia and being aimed at the Melbourne Cup that was reported on radio this morning

When they interviewed Tom Marquand last weekend he said the weekend just gone will be his last in Australia and he was heading home, they then asked him about Addeybb if he was staying down under to which he replied he was of the belief the horse was going home, at this stage I’m not sure if a flight has been arranged, Haggas commented the track in Melbourne would be too  firm he said the Flemington track drains that well that the surface of the rain affected track in the UK would’ve been classed as a slow to good track

Things can change as Haggas said this all before they extended the restrictions in the UK he did however mention if they did stay Addeybb would be aimed at the Cox Plate as we know that surface at the Valley has a bit of give in it
