RWWA Stewards and Bunbury Turf Club Officials inspected the Bunbury racetrack at 6.30am this morning, following 32mm of rainfall falling at the track in the previous 48 hours.
The inspection found surface water present at several points on the track and with the forecast of further rainfall during today it was unlikely there would be sufficient improvement in the surface before commencement of the meeting.
Accordingly, RWWA Stewards officially postponed today’s meeting at 6.40am.
This metropolitan class race meeting will now be run on Wednesday, 12 October 2016 with racefields remaining unchanged. The first race will be run at 1.03pm.
The Northam provincial meeting originally scheduled for Wednesday will now be held the following day on Thursday, 13 October 2016.
RWWA and Bunbury Turf Club acknowledge the support of Northam Race Club in achieving this outcome for the industry.
