Racing Victoria (RV) and the Echuca Racing Club (ERC) advised on Saturday afternoon that the Echuca meeting scheduled for Sunday has been transferred to Warracknabeal owing to wet weather.
After receiving 24mm of rain since Tuesday, 10mm of which fell overnight, the track was inspected by RV Stewards’ on Saturday morning with the surface deemed unsuitable for racing.
