Storm puts pay to Devonport meeting

17 / 12 / 2010 Article by: Editor

FURTHER torrential rain and thunder storms in the Devonport region just prior to noon today have forced stewards to postpone today’s eight-race gallop meeting at SpreytonPark.

An inspection of the track took place at 10.30am which gave the meeting the green light but the rain that fell over a 90-minute period from noon left surface water lying on the track in the home straight and much of the balance of the track was waterlogged.

Tasracing and the Devonport Racing Club are working towards rescheduling the meeting for either Tuesday or Wednesday next week with coverage on Sky 2.

A final decision on when the meeting will be run is likely to be made by tomorrow (Saturday) morning.
