Sydney Struggling To Lure Overseas Horses To Australia Due To Quarantine Arrangements

Dubai Racing Club Int'l Manager Martin Talty said that Sydney's "attempt to lure high-class overseas horses to its autumn carnival would succeed only when a satisfactory quarantine station and training facility is available in NSW," according to Patrick Bartley of THE AGE. Talty said on Sunday that the "awkward and stringent" quarantine demands made it "difficult to take international horses to Sydney." Talty said that Sydney should not "program any more international race meetings until a permanent quarantine base was in place" (THE AGE, 1/27).
