New meeting programmed at Warracknabeal

Racing Victoria (RV) advises that a new meeting has been programmed at Warracknabeal on Sunday, 25 July following the abandonment of Wangaratta earlier today due to the condition of the track. 

The Wangaratta track has received 55mm of rain over the past seven days, including 11mm which fell overnight, and with showers continuing this afternoon the track was unlikely to dry out in time for Sunday’s meeting.

With no other tracks in the north-east available, Warracknabeal was deemed the best turf option due to its current Soft 7 rating. 

All trainers will need to renominate for the new meeting, with nominations closing at 12noon tomorrow (Wednesday, 21 July). Acceptances will close at 9:30am on Thursday, 22 July.

The program for the Warracknabeal meeting is as follows:
