Racing Victoria (RV) advised late on Monday afternoon that Monday's race meeting at Kilmore was abandoned due to jockey concerns with a section of track from the 800m to the 300m mark.

Following reports that Hot Girl Wanted had slipped rounding the turn in race one, an inspection of this section of track was carried out by Stewards and jockeys to determine whether it was safe to continue racing.
