THE delivery of a track condition map for every thoroughbred meeting staged at Tattersall’s Park is expected to be well received by punters and industry participants.

The map produced to show the track ratings in various sections of the Elwick track was posted on the Tasracing website for the first time last Sunday and it was met with positive responses through social media.

The delivery of this map shows Tasracing’s transparency in that its aim is to deliver as much factual information about the track conditions at Tattersall’s Park

The readings are taken at 6 am on race day and provided there are no extraordinary weather shifts soon after, the ratings should be respected.

The track rating map will only be used for the Hobart track and not Launceston or Devonport.

The map can be viewed by industry participants and punters on race morning for all Hobart meetings from 9 am on race day.
