Bowman and Berry test negative to COVID-19

Star jockeys Hugh Bowman and Tommy Berry have tested negative to COVID-19 giving hope that racing will continue during the crisis.

The pair were tested as a precaution on Wednesday night because they shared a private plane last week with a Melbourne jockey, who had come into contact with someone who has tested positive to the virus.
