TAB thoroughbred race meetings scheduled for Saturday 27 October ABANDONED

Racing Queensland confirms, in accordance with its minimum race fields policy, that race meetings scheduled for Brisbane Racing Club, Gold Coast Turf Club, Toowoomba Turf Club and Townsville Turf Club on Saturday 27 October 2018 have been abandoned.

The policy states races that do not attract 16 nominations at the advertised closing time for nominations may have their nomination deadlines extended. If at the extended nomination deadline, a race has less than 5 nominations it may be deleted.

Nominations for these four meetings were extended from Monday 11am until Tuesday 9am with less than 5 nominations received for all races.

Racing Queensland has advised the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) and affected clubs that, as a result, all races programmed for these meetings have been deleted.

Brisbane Racing Club, Gold Coast Turf Club, Toowoomba Turf Club and Townsville Turf Club can apply to RQ to host betting meetings on the day, in accordance with Racing Queensland guidelines.
