The Waipa RC race meeting programmed for Thursday 13 March 2014 has been cancelled.
06 Mar 2014
The decision has been made at an early stage following inspections of the track by the NZTR Venue Inspector and the Racing Integrity Unit, amidst concerns that the surface will in all likelihood be too firm to race on, and as a result of there being no irrigation system at the venue. Also, the forecast is for there to be little rainfall in the region in the next week, so this too was a contributing factor in the decision.



The early decision to cancel the meeting will also allow trainers to consider alternative options for nomination opportunities over the next week & in particular for the South Waikato RC race meeting (at Matamata) on Wednesday 12 March, for which nominations close noon, Friday 7 March 2014. The programming of a replacement licence (post the Waipa cancellation) at an alternative venue was considered, but it was deemed unnecessary given the significant volume of alternative opportunities in the region in the next fortnight.



Two additional races have however been programmed for the South Waikato meeting and these are:



Maiden SW 1400m

$7,000

$4,375, $1,400, $700, $350, $175



Maiden 3YO SW 1600m

$7,000

$4,375, $1,400, $700, $350, $175
