The suspension of the races at the Hippodrome, amid complaints

Finally the meeting at the hipódromo / R. Acosta was suspended

The Hipódromo de La Plata had to suspend the meeting scheduled for yesterday, because the jockeys did not want to be part of the game due to “the poor conditions of the facilities,” as detailed.

A week ago the riders had advanced their wish that the authorities improve the room where they change and rest between races. They pointed out at that time that “the bathrooms were run-down and the floors dirty.” In addition, they showed their discomfort about the arrears in payments and the state of the track.

Although the Hipódromo started the usual transmission yesterday, after more than an hour of waiting – the first competition was scheduled for 2.30 – the meeting was canceled.

“It has been decided to suspend the meeting of the day of the date, due to the refusal of the jockeys to drive the competitors who had been designated,” said the Hippodrome on its official website.

The Hippodrome indicated that “the suspension of today’s meeting will entail the corresponding investigation in order to analyze the real causes of what happened, being that abnormal, violent and coercive situations were witnessed both in the vicinity and within the Racecourse” .
