Toowoomba Turf Club – Friday 25 January – Race Meeting Transferred to Warwick Turf Club

Racing Queensland confirms that following communication with Toowoomba Club and the QRIC, the race meeting programmed for Toowoomba Turf TC on Friday 25 January has been transferred to Warwick TC.

The decision has been made to provide sections of the track at Clifford Park an additional week to recover following unseasonable dry weather during the refurbishment of the racing surface undertaken in recent weeks.

As a consequence of the transfer, there has been changes made to the distances of five of the races on the seven race program.  These comprise:

  • Benchmark 75 Handicap – was 1625m, is now 1500m
  • Ratings 0-62 Handicap – was 1625m, is now 1500m
  • Class 2 Handicap – was 1300m, is now 1350m
  • Colts, Geldings & Entires Class 1 Handicap, was 1050m, is now 1100m
  • Fillies & Mares Class 1 Handicap, was 1050m, is now 1100m

The other two races’ distances remain as have been previously programmed, as does the remainder of the content of the program.

RQ will, as a consequence of the change, also extend nominations for all races at the meeting to 9:00am, Tuesday 22 January.

Those trainers who nominated horses for the race meeting on the understanding that it would be run at Toowoomba Turf Club are able to withdraw their nomination and have the relevant fee waived should they so choose.

The fixture will also now be a day meeting, as opposed to a night race meeting.
