Kumara Saturday 13 January – Abandoned

The Kumara RC meeting due to run this Saturday 13 January has been abandoned.  The region has experienced 200ml rainfall since Tuesday 9 January and further heavy rain is forecast today and tomorrow.


Six horses were galloped on the track this morning which was followed by a track inspection with the RIU and Club representatives.  It was decided following the track inspection that the volume of rain will compromise the venue’s suitability to hold the race meeting on Saturday.  Given the adverse weather forecast, an early decision has been made to try and assist trainers in future planning for their horses.


Bearing in mind the pending weather forecast, NZTR will look at options for the horses that have missed out on the opportunity to race at Kumara.
