Tuesday Races Confirmed

Gallops undertaken on the course Monday morning

A series of gallops this morning by seven horses on the Riccarton Park Course Proper has confirmed all is good to go for the rescheduled third day of the Canterbury Jockey Club Spring Racing Season on Tuesday.


Racing on Saturday was abandoned after the running of two races due to instances of horses losing their footing.


Since Saturday the Course Proper has been aerated with the Verti-drain machinery, mown and irrigated.


The penetrometer reading this morning has the going at Dead4 which is consistent with what was evident after the horses worked on the Course Proper.
