Ballarat meeting transferred to Warrnambool

Racing Victoria (RV) and the Ballarat Turf Club (BTC) advised on Thursday that the meeting scheduled at Ballarat on Tuesday, 4 February 2020 has been transferred to Warrnambool Racecourse. 

In addition to the Club’s annual track renovation period following the Ballarat Cup meeting in November, significant drainage works including sand slitting and sand banding were undertaken at sections shortly after the winning post and at the 1700-metre mark.

The regrowth following these track upgrades has not met expectations and as such it is in the best long-term interests of the track to transfer the upcoming meeting on 4 February.

The program for Warrnambool is as follows with one distance change required as a result of the transfer.
