Victoria and South Australia were the last 2 states where jumps racing was allowed, and now it's being banned in Victoria...a spokeswoman for Adelaide-based Federal Sports Minister Kate Ellis said racing was a State Government matter and fell outside Ms Ellis's portfolio. She said the government had no intention to pressure the last remaining pro-jumps racing state to ban the controversial discipline, even under the moral basis of cruelty to animals, driven by activists including the RSPCA.
Vote now: Should SA ban jumps racing? Scroll down the page to find the POLL and register your vote.

The Federal dodge follows the State Government's handball on Friday following the announcement Victoria would outlaw jumps events from 2011, when Racing Minister Michael Wright declined to step in.
