Hot weather brings forward start time for Gawler meeting

The forecast hot weather in Adelaide has resulted in Thoroughbred Racing SA bringing forward the starting time of the Gawler meeting on Saturday and an earlier finish. 

A top temperature of 42c is being tipped to hit Adelaide and the surrounds on Saturday. 

The decision was made in conjunction with the TRSA Industry Vet, Stewards, Equine Welfare Officer and the Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club, having regard for the temperature as well as the predicted wind and humidity throughout the day. 

TRSA has also implemented its Level 2 Hot Weather Policy. 

The times for the races will now be (local SA time): 

Race 1 – 10.35 am 
Race 2 – 11.05 am
