Abandoned Meetings

Kilmore (Vic) - Thursday 27th April 2017
 
Racing Victoria (RV) advises that the bet365 Park Kilmore meeting scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday 27 April has been abandoned due to the state of the track owing to continual heavy rainfall in the region.
Kilmore has received 76mm of rain in the last week and 10mm within the last 24 hours with more rain is forecast today and tomorrow.
A stewards’ inspection of the track at midday today determined that it was not in a suitable condition to conduct racing.
The Bet365 Park Kilmore meeting is not being transferred as it had a total of 67 acceptances and RV Racing Ops contacted all trainers with an acceptor to determine their appetite to run on a synthetic surface at either Racing.com Park Pakenham or Bet365 Park Geelong and approximately 50% of acceptors confirmed they would not run on a synthetic surface, leaving only approximately 35-40 horses across the eight races. Due to the rain experienced across Victoria there were no opportunities to transfer the meeting to a suitable grass track.
