Statement From Aquis Group CEO, Shane McGrath

In Uncategorized by Ben Ready

Following a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Aquis Farm Group in Sydney today, at the conclusion of the Easter Sale, the decision has been taken that where Aquis Farm is the Managing Owner of a horse it owns wholly or partially, it will not race that horse in Queensland until a number of integrity issues concerning Queensland racing are fully resolved to ensure a level playing field for all participants.

As a consequence, Aquis Farm will be directing the scratching of all its runners nominated for Queensland races effective immediately. 

Where Aquis Farm is a part owner of a horse and are unable to control whether it races or not, due to it not being the Managing Owner, the Board of Directors has determined that Aquis Farm will donate the share of any prizemoney generated by said horse to a nominated charity.
