Media Statement - Central Otago RC
NZTR has asked the Racing Integrity Unit to investigate the circumstances that led to the Central Otago meeting at Omakau not being held today 3 January.
NZTR CEO Bernard Saundry said “We have asked the Racing Integrity Unit to investigate how a section of the track was over watered that resulted in the meeting not proceeding. This is a very disappointing result for the club, participants, and our customers”.
The Central Otago meeting has been re-scheduled for Friday 5 January at Omakau. The fields remain the same and all scratching have been re-instated. There is a new first race time of 12.14pm.
