Matamata RC Wednesday 29 March Abandoned

Today’s Matamata race-meeting has been abandoned due to persistent and heavy rain and consequently the track has deteriorated since scratching time at 7.30am this morning. The forecast for the remainder of the day is poor. The RIU together with trainer and jockey representatives and club officials inspected the track around 11am this morning and concluded that the track is not fit for racing. Visibility issues for riders are likely. NZTR will look to add a race or races to the up-coming meetings at Waipa and Counties on 5 April and 9 April.
