RWWA Stewards and Mount Barker Turf Club Officials inspected the Mount Barker track earlier today, following remedial works undertaken during the last month.

The inspection found the track surface to have improved considerably, however to mitigate any risk to the track being in optimum condition for the Club’s feature ‘Grapes and Gallops’ meeting on 17 January 2016, the Mount Barker meeting scheduled for Wednesday, 30 December 2015 is cancelled.

Given the Albany Racing Club is already hosting a fixture only four day days earlier on Boxing Day, the Mount Barker meeting will not be transferred to another venue.

The following race programme changes are applicable for the Albany Racing Club meeting on Saturday, 26 December 2015:

  • Add Rtg 52-64 Handicap 1230 metres
  • Add Rtg 58+ Handicap 1600 metres
  • Add Rtg 68+ Handicap 1100 metres
  • Delete Rtg 52-64 Handicap 1600 metres

Nominations for this nine race programme at Albany close at 9.30am on Tuesday, 22 December 2015.
