Hot Weather Policy Invoked For Canterbury
With the mercury predicted to reach 38 degrees in Sydney, Racing NSW has advised that the Level 1 Hot Weather Policy has been invoked for today's meeting at Canterbury Park. Race club officials will have ice, water, scrapers and extra hoses available to assist in the cooling of horses. Stewards will minimise the time that horses are required to parade or be held in mounting enclosures both pre- and post-race or behind the starting barriers. Horses must be allowed sufficient time to adequately cool down before being floated back to their stables.
