Tatura Trials to Benalla (Vic), Monday 7th to Tuesday 8th October 2019

Racing Victoria (RV) wishes to advise that the trials scheduled at Tatura on Monday, 7 October 2019 have been rescheduled for Tuesday, 8 October in order to avoid a clash with Monday’s Benalla race meeting.
The trials were originally scheduled to run in conjunction with the race meeting at Kilmore, however the Kilmore meeting was transferred to Benalla last month while the track consolidates from recent works.
Conducting trials at Tatura and a meeting at Benalla on the same day presented an issue for participants and officials due to their close proximity, hence the decision to move the trials to the following day.
Nominations for the trials will now close at 12noon on Friday 4 October.
