Macedon Ranges resident Suzanne Carroll, a successful fashion designer and ardent racegoer, has made a petition-led bid to persuade authorities to allow spectators to attend the 2021 Kyneton Cup race meeting on November 3.

The Riddells Creek entrepreneur said the residents of Macedon Ranges had supported the action to get vaccinated and deserved to be able to attend the event.

“Currently more than 90 per cent have received their single dose with 74.3 per cent double dosed (as at October 14),” Ms Carroll said.

“A crowd of 10,000 are allowed on Tuesday November 2 in metro Melbourne, however the Kyneton Cup on Wednesday November 3 is not allowed crowds.

“This is grossly unfair to Kyneton businesses and everybody who looks forward to it as regional Victoria has far less COVID cases than metro Melbourne.

“We want this decision overturned and crowds – fully vaccinated, socially distanced – allowed to attend this year’s Kyneton Cup.”
