IMMUNIZATION OR NOT?
Newcastle Jockey Club Racecourse. Deserted. An outbreak of Equine Influenza has occured and the horses in this state have been held in isolation for some weeks now which has caused all sorts of problems for the industry.
This has resulted in several race meetings for the horses and their connections without the punters allowed to attend and for off-course betting purposes. I bet the horses miss the crowd. When will it all get back on track?
The upper Hunter River region is the home of horse breeding and the industry is at a standstill.
