Our lagoon in the middle of the track split over the Polytrack and onto the course proper this morning. This didn’t happen in March in this area. @racing_nsw @7horseracing @SkyRacingAU @9NewsSyd @7NewsSydney #hawkesburyjulyflood2022 #hawkesburyfloods pic.twitter.com/7kEfhzClIH— Hawkesbury Race Club (@hawkesburyrc) July 5, 2022
We are lucky, our property is high n dry. No trackwork but every horse worked onsite. Thanks to our staff and their commitment. @hawkesburyrc @7horseracing @SkyRacingAU @racing_nsw @7NewsSydney @Racing pic.twitter.com/zzdjHRehRg— BradWiddupRacing (@BWiddupRacing) July 5, 2022
