MASKS MANDATORY ON COURSE FOR 2 WEEEKS

Please note that as early as possible, GRSA will be requiring all participants (inc. trainers/catcher) and staff to wear a mask when at any of our race courses This includes the carpark, kennel house and the track. If you do not have a mask when you arrive, GRSA will provide one. The wearing of masks will replace the planned temperature testing previously advised. GRSA will revise the requirement of masks in 2 weeks.
