Wanganui Meeting Rescheduled for Wednesday

Monday, 11th September 2017

Saturday's abandoned Wanganui Jockey Club meeting has been rescheduled for Wednesday. The Listed HS Dyke Wanganui Guineas and the Listed O'Leary's Fillies' Stakes for 3YOs were the feature events on the card that was called off due to the unsafe track conditions. "The rail is okay, but after a couple of races they would be going wider and the further out the wetter it is with water pooling and the track is not fit for racing," stipendiary steward Neil Goodwin told NZ Racing Desk. "It's not a matter of horses slipping, it's a visibility issue. It's terribly gutting for the club and driving in I've never seen water like it on the roadside and in the paddocks."
