Westland Racing Club Wednesday 10 January - Abandoned

 There has been significant rainfall in Hokitika overnight which has affected the racing surface at the Westland Racing Club.

 Stipendiary Stewards and Westland Racing Club representatives have inspected the track and have concluded that the inconsistencies in the racing surface are a safety concern and as a result the race meeting has been abandoned.

 Horses were galloped on the surface this morning and riders confirmed the nature of the track was inconsistent.  Further rain is forecast for today and tomorrow.
