Te Aroha Trials 18 December – Abandoned due to storm damage at the Te Aroha Racecourse
The Te Aroha trials due to run Thursday 18 December have been abandoned due to stormy weather conditions in the Te Aroha area. Te Aroha Racecourse property has suffered extensive damage overnight and will take some time to repair, therefore making the venue unsafe to hold a trials meeting on Thursday.
Due to the very high number of entries for today’s Te Aroha trials and the fact there are no Northern trials scheduled until 13 January NZTR and Racing Te Aroha will run a limited trials program at Te Aroha this Thursday 18 December. The program is as follows:
MDN Catchweight 1000m
MDN Catchweight 1200m
MDN Catchweight 1400m
New nominations will be taken and will close with the NRB at 12 noon on Wednesday 17 December. There will be a maximum of 7 heats and horses nominated and eliminated from today’s Te Aroha trials meeting will be given first preference.
NZTR is extremely grateful for the assistance of Racing Te Aroha in making the venue available again at short notice.
