Major upgrade at Pukekohe

A major track upgrade is scheduled to begin at the Counties Racing Club’s track in mid-December.
Racing will cease at Pukekohe Park after the trial meeting scheduled for December 8 and the extensive drainage work and track reconstruction will take place over the summer months.
“The plan is to lay new drains and take the undulations out of the front and back straights to provide a good even surface,” Counties Racing Club Chairman Darryl Butson said.
“After losing two meetings recently and transferring one already this season we need to make these improvements to our track and by closing down in December we can hopefully have an improved surface to race on in the 2015-16 racing season.”
The remaining seven meetings originally scheduled for Counties for the 2014-2015 season will be transferred to other clubs in the northern region.
