Te Teko Races Cancelled/Races added to Ellerslie
The Whakatane meeting scheduled for Te Teko this Friday 21 April has been cancelled due to torrential and persistent rain in the region. The course is currently water-logged in many parts and the club are unable to guarantee a consistent or safe surface for racing. There are no other tracks in the northern region available to accommodate this meeting. NZTR, together with the Auckland RC, will add a Mdn 2YO 1200m and a Mdn 1200m race to their programme on Saturday 22 April. Both these races will be worth $10,000. No races are able to be added to the Avondale meeting on Anzac Day given the requirement to start racing after 1pm. There will be a final race added to the Tauranga meeting scheduled for 27 April tomorrow.
