On Tuesday, June 9, the Quebec Jockey Club Board of Directors announced that Hippodrome Trois-Rivieres (H3R) has received the green light to host spectator-free live harness racing in 2020.

The QJC's letter to participants on the matter appears below in English.

Important notice - Spectator-free races

After months of forced shutdown, we are pleased to announce the return of the races at Hippodrome 3R for the 2020 season.

We have worked with the Department of Health and Safety to provide a safe place for all workers of the industry.

A strict control system has been put in place to properly meet government requirements and we are asking your full cooperation and comply with it. To this end, a code of conduct and certification have been created. They must be read, signed and adhered to at all times when you are on the racetrack grounds.

A schedule of appointment-only training will be established with the concept of first-come, first-served. More details will be emailed today regarding the code of conduct and making an appointment to train your horses. Qualifying, regular and stakes race schedules will be redone in the coming days. We will notify you as soon as possible of the opening date.

Important reminder: You must have, renewed your licenses with the RACJ and Standardbred Canada, paid your eligibility fees (SC) and your insurance (SC or ATAQ), otherwise your horses will not be able to race. Please also make sure you have the Coggins test done on your horses before you show up at the racetrack.

Thank you and welcome back,

Board of Directors of the Quebec Jockey Club
