NZMTC, Feb. 14, race night cancelled

J Scott Latest News


Following on from the decision of the New South Wales Harness Racing Club and Harness Racing New South Wales to no longer conduct the Inter Dominion Qualifying Heat scheduled to be run at Addington Raceway on Saturday February 14, the New Zealand Metropolitan have elected not to proceed with the scheduled race meeting for that night.

This meeting has previously only been held to support the running of the Inter Dominion Heat and with the heat abandoned it leaves the entire event at a financial level where the Club is not prepared to proceed without this signature event as the main attraction.

This decision has been made and communicated as soon as possible to ensure any inconvenience for stakeholders is
minimised as much as possible.

The Sires Stakes race scheduled to run at this meeting will now be transferred to the Timaru Harness Racing Club’s meeting on February 15.

Further programming changes will be considered for Banks Peninsula on February 13, Timaru February 15, and Addington on February 20th in recognition of the changes this cancellation creates.

Any enquiries can be directed to Addington’s Racing Manager Brian Rabbitt by telephoning 03 338 9094 or Pete Ydgren at HRNZ on 03 09641189.
