An update from the Victoria Racing Club on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Current as at 13 May 2020
The global COVID-19 pandemic is a very confronting and unprecedented situation that has impacted everyone. Our thoughts remain with every person affected by COVID-19 and the VRC is determined to do its part by taking decisive action to help minimise the spread of the virus and its effect on the community.
This page will serve as an information hub for VRC members and our community, which we’ll update regularly as new information relevant to members, partners, industry participants and the wider public comes to hand, as well as updates on Flemington events. If you require specific information, please contact our Customer Service team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support of the VRC and we look forward to welcoming you back to Flemington as soon as we can.
