Pakenham race meeting abandoned

Pakenham race meeting abandoned

Racing Victoria (RV) wishes to advise that today’s race meeting at Pakenham has been abandoned.

The decision has been made in consultation with the Victorian Jockeys Association (VJA) following the death of a female jockey in a training accident at the Cranbourne Training Centre this morning.

The meeting has been abandoned in the interests of participant welfare and out of respect for the rider and her family.

RV and VJA are providing counselling support to the rider’s family, her colleagues and the racing community.

Those needing confidential counselling are encouraged to contact STABLELINE on 1300 520 122.
