In a strong step to strengthen the assurance of racing integrity, NZTR has moved to ban Jockeys from betting on any New Zealand Thoroughbred race if they are riding on that day. Further, controls regarding the requirement for any bets to be placed solely via a Jockey’s electronic account with the New Zealand TAB have been updated.
