Review underway after Trentham racing incident

From Midday Report, 12:18 pm on 1 February 2021

A full review is underway into security at raceways after a spectator jumped onto the track during a horse race at the Wellington Cup Day.

Videos show the spectator jumping the fences at Upper Hutt's Trentham Racecourse on Saturday and standing still in the middle of the track, with jockeys having to steer their horses around him on the home straight.

No one was injured, nor were any horses.

Emma Hatton spoke with RNZ's reporter, Jonathan Mitchell, who's been following developments.
