Innovation-packed rail for New South Wales (Australia)

Gosford (Australia) will become the first track in New South Wales to utilise a plastic running rail at its race meeting on December 28 2010.

The new Fornells rail incorporates 5 patented technologies and will ensure increased safety for jockeys and horses at all Gosford race meetings. An exclusive collapsible post conceived by Australian trainer Ray Borg and developed by Fornells has been incorporated to the rail system.

A team from Fornells Engineering department assisted the Gosford groundstaff to install the moveable rail in the three days leading up to Christmas.

“The Gosford Race Club is well aware of the safety improvements for jockeys and horses that a plastic running rail can provide,” stated Gosford Race Club chief executive James Heddo.

"Fornells was the first to install plastic rail in Victoria (at Geelong) so its good to see this innovation-packed running-rail be the first to be introduced in NSW." adds Fornells Australia MD David Hawke ( contact: david.hawke@fornells.com ).
