The NSW-Victorian border has reopened for licensed racing participants but SA visitors forced to quarantine

NEW South Wales will be reopened to Victorian trainers and jockeys, without the need for mandatory isolation and COVID testing.

Racing Victoria announced the scaling back of protocols on Friday, with the new rules in place from 11.59pm Sunday.

The current orders require those seeking to travel beyond the border to isolate for five days and take a COVID test on the sixth day.

But RV has reinstated quarantine controls on participants wishing to travel into Victoria from South Australia.

Licensed or registered trainers, jockeys or staff currently in South Australia will be required to quarantine for 14 days in Victoria before being allowed to attend a stable or racecourse.

The transportation of horses from SA remains unchanged, with only approved float companies permitted to travel the livestock.

The horses must be placed in the care of a Victorian trainer – to be approved by the Stewards – and be at that trainers’ stables by 9am on the day before a race.
