Five mixed-surface meetings for August

Originally scheduled as an all-Polytrack month of racing, the month of August will now see half of its 10 all-weather race meetings changed to mixed-surface (Polytrack and turf) meetings.

With the turf track holding up better than expected, five of the meetings in the coming weeks will be mixed meetings instead, as the originally planned extensive maintenance on the turf track need not be carried out.

The five mixed meetings are on Aug 15, 17, 22, 24 and 31.

All the other meetings in August will remain on the Polytrack surface.
