General

Due to significant rain immediately prior to the scheduled start time of Race 1 at 6:30pm, the mobile barrier was tested and unable to gain traction due to the deteriorating track surface. A further mobile barrier was tested and was also unable to gain sufficient traction.

To allow for remedial work to be undertaken on the track, all races were initially re-scheduled back one (1) race with Race 9 re-scheduled to commence at 10:57pm.

Due to further heavy rain, significants washouts in the racing surface were then evident around both turns which caused the base of the track to be exposed.

In consultation with the track curator, representatives from the Victorian Trainers and Drivers Association (VTDA) and due to continued inclement weather and the state of the track, which was unsuitable for racing purposes, the meeting was postponed at 7:10pm.

Race 4

In accordance with Rule 75(2)(l) Gotta Go Henry was successfully claimed by Troy Hillier of Tasmania.
