Racing Victoria (RV) and the Apsley Racing Club (ARC) wish to advise that the bet365 Apsley Cup scheduled at bet365 Edenhope on Sunday, 12 June has been transferred to Casterton.
The Edenhope track was inspected on Wednesday (1 June) following recent drainage works with a set of gallops also conducted to test the surface.
Following the inspections and gallops, it was determined the surface is not yet in a position for ARC to host their Cup meeting at Edenhope as the surface requires additional time to consolidate.
Following consultation with the Club, the decision has been made to transfer the meeting to Casterton in the interests of horse and participant safety.
RV and Country Racing Victoria wish to acknowledge the ARC for their support and engagement on this item and appreciate their disappointment that they will not be racing at Edenhope in 2022.
The updated program as a result of the transfer is as follows:
Nominations for the Apsley Cup meeting at Casterton close at 12pm on Tuesday, 7 June and acceptance are 9:30am on Thursday, 9 June.
