Werribee Tuesday Racing Cancelled
Victorian racing has lost another meeting due to bushfires and associated smoke haze, following Tuesday morning’s announcement that the day’s Werribee meeting south-west of Melbourne was being abandoned. According to racing.com, the decision was made at 7.30am after the greater Melbourne area had been covered in smoke since Monday, and with the Bureau of Meteorology suggesting that the hazardous air quality would not improve through Tuesday. It follows the cancellation of Wangarratta racing just before Chritmas as a result of similar conditions.
