Victoria Forced To Cancel Wednesday Meetings

Thursday, 16th January 2020

Following Tuesday’s cancellation at Werribee, Racing Victoria advised, via racing.com, that yesterday's scheduled race meetings at Caulfield and Yarra Valley have both had to be abandoned due to lingering smoke haze and poor air quality. With air quality described as hazardous and unfit for racing, the decision was made at 7.30am as there were no prospects of the situation improving. Unfortunately for industry participants, it marks the third successive day that the State of Victoria will not have had any racing. That is not ideal in the build up to a number of major feature races.
