Orange pulls the wrong rain: race meeting moved to Wednesday

THE race meeting and family fun day planned for Towac Park yesterday was cancelled by stewards due to some concerns over wet areas.

The race meeting has now been rescheduled for Towac Park on Wednesday.

Stewards made the call in Orange just before 9.30am on Saturday morning after they visited the track with members of the Racing Orange committee.

“The track would have been alright to race with the rain we had until then, but there were some concerns over the damp areas with the crossings at the track,” chair of Racing Orange Ellie Brown said.

Ms Brown said Racing Orange still intends to go ahead with the family fun day which was to run in conjunction with the seven  race meeting.

Ms Brown said with the Dubbo race meeting also cancelled on Saturday after stewards inspected the track there are some advantages for Orange.

“It looks as though we will be picking up a couple of extra races,” she said.

Nominations for Wednesday’s race meeting have re-opened.
