Murwillumbah meet on track
IT'S all systems go for the Tweed River Jockey Club’s (TRJC) annual Melbourne Cup meeting tomorrow.
While the weekend rain may have made a few punters nervous about the staging of the six-race meet, TRJC secretary-manager Steve Huggins said the downpour had come at an ideal time.
“We’ve had a bit of rain these past few nights and it has done the track a lot of good, especially after last week’s meeting,” he said.
“The racing surface is in excellent condition and currently rated slow.
“We are expecting a big crowd on race day, with gates opening as scheduled at 10am.”
The first race at Murwillumbah jumps at 12.50pm.
