Sunday’s scheduled 10-race time-graded meeting for Tara Raceway was cancelled after the predicted forecast for Mount Gambier was posted at 40 degrees on Saturday afternoon.
Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club secretary/treasurer Barry Shepheard said the meeting had been cancelled in accordance with the Greyhound Racing SA Hot Weather Policy.
“It’s a rare occurrence for a greyhound meeting not to go ahead in Mount Gambier, the last fixture called off at Tara Raceway being five years ago on Friday, January 4, 2013, also due to hot weather,” he said.
Tara Raceway will now race next Sunday (February 4), followed by a time-graded meeting on Friday, February 9.
