Precautionary Jockey Stand Downs

Racing Victoria (RV) Stewards, acting on the advice of RV’s Chief Medical Officer and in an abundance of caution, have today stood down several jockeys who have returned from Sydney in the past seven days and asked them to self-isolate at home pending the result of a COVID-19 test.

Jockeys Craig Williams, Luke Currie, Nash Rawiller and Jake Noonan have been removed by order of the Stewards from their rides at race meetings today (Yarra Valley, The Valley), tomorrow (Flemington) and/or Sunday (Sale, Horsham) and will be replaced by other riders.

A further update will be provided on these riders once the result of their tests are known in the coming days.
