Racing participants in flood affected areas can access assistance from Queensland’s racing integrity body.
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) had established a hotline to assist participants in caring for their animals.
The hotline has been established after reports of some racing participants in flood-impacted areas facing issues such as gaining access to their animals, treating injured animals and caring for their basic needs.
QRIC can help participants connect with local veterinarian services and provide information about local agencies that may be able to assist.
Racing participants can contact QRIC on 0447 657 233 for any flood related racing animal welfare concerns.
