Race meet back on after unfortunate cancellation
Whilst many were planning on heading to the Murtoa cup Saturday - the race meet was unfortunately abandoned due to a burst water pipe on the most integral part of the track - the home straight...
In what no one could have predicted the pipe burst right on the turn into the home straight with stewards deciding saturday morning the track was unfit for racing and first and foremost the personal safety of Jockeys, volunteers and horses was number one.
All the hard work the Murtoa racing club committee and volunteers hasn't gone to waste though with country racing Victoria rescheduling the meet to this Sunday.
The Manangatang and Hamilton Cup meetings are scheduled on Saturday and Racing Victoria will review the racing program and advise of any changes to the Murtoa Cup program.
