Racing NSW has decided to stick with their decision not to issue or allow dual licenses which was brought to the public eye recently when Melbourne Cup winning jockey Michelle Payne was not allowed to ride in Sydney due to holding a dual license in Victoria.

Have Your Say: Do you think Racing NSW should allow dual licenses or not? – Leave a comment below.

 

Racing NSW’s media statement:

The Board of Racing NSW gave substantial consideration to the issue of dual Jockey/Trainer licenses.

After receiving strong recommendation from its Stewards on integrity issues associated with dual licences, the Board decided to maintain its policy, namely that dual licenses are not issued in NSW and that where a person is licensed as a Jockey/Trainer in another jurisdiction, that person is permitted to start horses in NSW as a Trainer but not be licensed as a Jockey.

Racing NSW Chief Executive, Mr Peter V’landys AM, said:

“This decision is no reflection upon Michelle Payne, for whom we have the utmost admiration and respect. However, we have to look beyond the individual when we believe that there are concerns related to integrity and perception of our industry.

“The confidence of punters in the integrity of thoroughbred racing is paramount. In maintaining the confidence of punters, it is critical that punters not only believe that our integrity is of the highest order but also that the perception of our industry be the same.”
