Racing NSW 5: Minimum Track Standards By July 1
The Board "is finalising minimum standards for training tracks & minimum standards for maintenance of racetracks & training tracks & it is intended that these standards will be implemented from July 1". The Board noted: "There is nothing more frustrating for an owner or trainer than to find their horse breaks down due to inferior training tracks or racing surfaces." In addition: "Punters are also disadvantaged if racetracks are not maintained with best practice, which in turn cause a bias of the racing surface."
