Newsflash – Fairview Friday Surface Switch

Danger to horse and rider

Following heavy early morning rain (30mm in an hour) an early decision has been made to move Friday’s meeting from turf to the polytrack.

The track is waterlogged in many areas, and with further rain forecast throughout the today, the decision was unanimous, as it poses a danger to both horse and rider.

Please take note of the following card changes:

  • Race 1: Will now be run over 1300m.
  • Races 2 & 3: Will now be run over 2200m.
  • Race 9: Will now be run over 1300m.

  • Media release by NRB at 10h01 on Thursday 19 August 2021
