Woodville Pahiatua RC – Monday 31 March 2014 - Meeting Cancelled
The Woodville Pahiatua RC race meeting programmed for Monday 31 March 2014 has been cancelled.
The decision has been made at an early stage following inspections of the track by the NZTR Venue Inspector and the Racing Integrity Unit, who formed the view that the surface will be too firm to race on, and as a result of there being no irrigation system at the venue.
The early decision to cancel the meeting will also allow trainers to consider the alternative option of nominating for Wanganui JC on Thursday 27 March, for which nominations for all races have been extended to 9am, Tuesday 25 March.
The programming of a replacement licence (post the Woodville cancellation) at an alternative venue was considered by NZTR, the Regional Programming Committee & the NZ Trainers Association, but it was deemed unnecessary given the significant volume of alternative opportunities in the region in the next fortnight.
One additional race has however been programmed for the Otaki Maori RC race meeting on Thursday 3 April and this is:
Maiden 3YO SW 1200m
$4,375, $1,400, $700, $350, $175
NZTR have advised they will also be proactive in the dividing of races in the region in the next fortnight should nomination numbers deem it appropriate.
