Caulfield Makes Hay While the Sun Shines
Melbourne Racing Club, which has scheduled a Boxing Day twilight meeting at Caulfield Racecourse, has put in a request to Racing Victoria to change Sandown's planned twilight race meeting on 18 December to Caulfield instead, effectively providing the Club with an opportunity to trial the innovation. According to racing.com, Racing Victoria has acceded to the request. With the track in good shape, having had no racing since Caulfield Cup Day, the only change to race distances with the shift from Sandown is that the 1300m maiden plate programmed now becomes 1200m. All races on the 18 December card will be worth $50,000 each.
