Warwick Farm meeting transferred to Canterbury on Thursday

The big wet in New South Wales and Queensland has caused a reshuffle of the venues originally scheduled to host racing on Wednesday.

The Sydney meeting originally set down for Warwick Farm on Wednesday will now be held at Canterbury on Thursday.

The transferral of Wednesday’s meeting following the postponement of Tuesday’s polytrack trials, which will now be held on Wednesday, and the abandonment of the last four races at Tuesday’s Grafton meeting due to incessant rain and visibility issues.

The Sunshine Coast’s synthetic track is the new home for Wednesday’s Ipswich meeting after a Tuesday morning track inspection at Ipswich determined the track was too wet for racing and that there was no likelihood of the surface recovering sufficiently for racing to proceed Wednesday.

That transferral will also necessitate the following distance and field-size changes:
