In line with changes to mask mandates in South Australia, HRSA wish to advise that mask wearing on racetracks is now non-compulsory, effective immediately.
The Premier of South Australia has announced that masks are now only required on passenger transport, planes, indoors at airports, hospitals and community healthcare, residential aged cared, disability care facilities and correctional service facilities.
The HRSA vaccination policy remains unchanged.
Best wishes for the Easter break.

GLOBE DERBY PARK - Saturday 16th April 2022
Race 1: Kapunda Cups Day Sunday April 24 Pace
ABSOLUTION (4) was a last start winner when he defeated ONE NIGHT AT THEMILE by 1.9 meters. He can be extremely inconsistent at times but if he brings his best performance tonight he should be too good for this field.
STYLISH HEAVEN (5), ROCKY MONALOO (2) and SUTTER MAN (1) are also chances.
Race 2: John Rothe Video Pace
BLOSSOM DELIGHT (6) didn’t run the best race first up from a spell last start at Port Pirie. She meets a very even field tonight. If she can repeat some of her Victorian form from last preparation she will be right in the finish.
Race 3: TAB Venue Mode Mares Pace
BELLA SOFIA (1) was a winner two starts back when she defeated THUMBS UP by 2 meters. She should be able to hold the lead from the inside draw. She will be hard to catch if she leads.

JOEY GIRL (5) and TIDDLY WINX (3) are also chances.
Race 4: Hygain Release Pace
JOONIOR BROWN (5) defeated LAP OF HONOUR by a neck last start here on Monday. He meets a pretty easy field tonight. He should be too good.

ONE NIGHT AT THEMILE (3) and STEINMAN (4) are also chances.
Race 7:  Arclight Photography Pace

MOTU PREMIER (9) and MAHARAJAH (4) are also chances.
 Race 7: Goolwa Hotel Pace

Drivers are advised that effective from the race meeting conducted at Globe Derby Park on Saturday 16 April penalties for indiscretions involving interference on the first turn of a race will increase.
Presently, where a driver is found guilty of a charge of under Rules HR 168(1) (careless, reckless, etc), HR 163(1)(a) (causing or contributing to interference) or HR 165(1) (not adequate clearance) the HRSA Penalty Guidelines prescribe a starting point for consideration of penalty (i) where a horse has been checked tightened or jostled of twenty-one (21) days suspension of licence and (ii) where a horse has been checked and galloped of twenty-eight (28) days suspension of licence. The Guidelines state “a premium of up to 21 days may be applied for cases where a driver is found to have displayed a high degree of carelessness or for first turn offences.”
Stewards have not routinely applied this discretion.
Drivers are notified that commencing 16 April 2022, the minimum starting point in the deliberation of penalties for “first turn” interference in which horses are checked and break gait will be forty-two (42) days, or six weeks.
Where horses are interfered with but considered to have been checked without breaking gait, tightened, or jostled, the minimum starting point in the deliberation of penalties will be twenty-eight (28) days, or four weeks.
Stewards will continue to acknowledge pleas and driving records as well as the presence of mitigating or aggravating factors as presently occurs.
The decision to increase penalties has been arrived at after considering recent offences and is intended to enhance the safety of the racetrack for both drivers and the horses and afford all runners an unimpeded run in races.
