Livamol Classic Rescheduled

Tuesday, 10th October 2017

The Gr1 Livamol Classic (2040m) will be run at Hastings on Sunday, 22 October, reports NZ racing Desk. The $250,000 weight-for-age feature, along with the Gr3 Spring Sprint (1400m), were among the five races that were cancelled when heavy rain caused the Hastings meeting to be abandoned last weekend. New entries will be taken for the Livamol next Tuesday, 17 October. "We believe that this has been the best possible outcome, following the disappointment we all felt on Saturday afternoon," said Hawke's Bay Racing Chief Executive, Butch Castles. The decision means the new Hastings meeting will be part of a huge Labour weekend for New Zealand punters. Saturday will feature the Gr3 Sweynesse Stakes and Listed Jakkalberry Classic at Rotorua, the Gr3 John Grigg Stakes at Ashburton and the Caulfield Cup meeting in Melbourne, while the Gr2 Sarten Memorial will headline the Labour Monday meeting at Te Rapa.
