Police are urging racegoers attending this weekend?s Golden Slipper Carnival to act responsibly to ensure that everyone enjoys the event.

A crowd of 34, 000 people is expected to gather at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday (3 April 2010) for the Sydney Turf Club meeting highlighted by the $3.5million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m), and officers attached to Rosehill Local Area Command will be at the venue conducting a high visibility operation.

Rosehill Duty Officer, Inspector Jason McSweeney, says officers will be focussing on reducing anti-social behaviour, preventing crime and ensuring crowd safety.

?We want people to enjoy the day, but warn patrons that if they drink too much, become a nuisance to other racegoers, or commit offences, they will be dealt with swiftly by police,? Insp McSweeney said.
