VRC Statement

13 September 2023 Written by VRC

Any form of abuse in the community is abhorrent and the Victoria Racing Club (VRC) totally condemns this behaviour in society.

The VRC has strongly supported the independent review by the Office of Racing Integrity Commissioner (ORIC) into historical abuse in the Victorian Racing Industry, made up of thoroughbred racing led by Racing Victoria, Harness Racing Victoria and Greyhound Racing Victoria, and acknowledges the report that has been handed down and the important work conducted by the ORIC.

We acknowledge both the pain endured by people across the racing industry and those whose lives have been affected.
