Update on Ruakaka races scheduled 16 October:
Whangarei Racing Club's scheduled Wednesday 16 October race meeting will proceed as planned. Following the abandonment of last week's race meeting NZTR and Clubs officials and their contractors have confirmed the following - the rail is to be moved out 4m from the true position tomorrow around the circumference of the track. Organic matter has also now been spread over the inside (training) track, which is where the sand was blown onto the inside section of the course proper last week causing the abandonment of that meeting. The water has now been reconnected and can be used via the k line system as required to dampen down the inside track. NZTR will continue to closely monitor the preparation of the Ruakaka track ahead of next week's racemeeting.
