Ipswich Turf Club – Friday 27 July – Change to Race Distance

RQ confirms that following consultation with the Australian Trainers Association, Ipswich TC & QRIC, there has been a change to the distance of the following race at the Ipswich TC race meeting on Friday 27 July:

Class 3 Handicap – was 1666m, is now 1390m

Horses already nominated for the race are entitled to retain their place in the nominations, but existing nominations are able to be deleted, with no fees payable.

As a consequence of the change, nominations have been re-opened for the following races, both of which may offer alternative opportunities for those which the change to the Ipswich TC race distance is not deemed suitable:

  • Beaudesert RC – Sat 28 July – Class 2 Plate (SW) – 1650m
  • Sunshine Coast TC – Sun 29 Jul – Benchmark 62 Handicap – 1600m

Please note that the re-opening of nominations for these races will be restricted only to those horses which were previously nominated for the Ipswich TC race which has had its distance changed.  Further, in the interests of fairness, those horses which were nominated for the Ipswich TC race originally, will be deemed original (not late) nominations for either of the aforementioned races.

The change to the distance of the Ipswich TC race has been deemed necessary to facilitate a continuation of the recovery of a section of the track between the 1600m & 1400m points.
