Distance Changes to Two Races – Ipswich Turf Club – Wednesday 24 October

RQ confirms that following communications with Ipswich Turf Club, there have been amendments to the distance of two races on the program for the club’s race meeting on Wednesday 24 October.

The changes are:

  • Benchmark 65 Handicap – was 1666m, is now 1350m; and
  • Maiden Handicap - was 1666m, is now 1350m.

The changes have been made to allow the racing surface near the crossing which has previously encountered issues further time to recover following the recent bout of inclement weather experienced in SEQ.

The remainder of the program for the Ipswich TC race meeting on Wednesday 24 October remains as has been previously published.

RQ also confirms that an inspection of the racing surface at Ipswich TC will take place tomorrow, Thursday 18 October, in advance of the club’s race meeting on Friday 19 October.
