Hawke's Bay Track Update

A horse from the Lowry/Cullen Stable galloped on the course proper yesterday(Tuesday)morning with the rider indicating a track in the Dead4/Good3 range. The penetrometer reading suggested a Good3 track. After forecast rain only delivered 1.5mm yesterday irrigation was applied to the Hastings track Tuesday evening. 14mm of irrigation was applied with the rating this morning a Dead4.

Since Tuesday 12 September in the vicinity of 50mm of irrigation has been applied as forecast rain has continually failed to materialize(there has been just 4.6mm of rain at the track since Tarzino Trophy day, September 2). There is now some rain forecast for Thursday afternoon with clearing weather predicted Friday and Saturday.
