Meeting ABANDONED – Rockhampton 14 May
Published 12 May 2022
Racing Queensland (RQ) confirms that the Rockhampton Jockey Club race meeting scheduled for this Saturday, May 14, has been abandoned.
The abandonment decision was made this morning by QRIC Stewards and club officials following an inspection of the racing surface which has been the recipient of large volumes of rain over the past 72 hours, to the extent that it now contains significant areas of surface water. Further, it is the officials’ view that irrespective of the weather which is prevalent over the next 48 hours, there is no likelihood that the track will recover in time for the race meeting to proceed.
The rescheduling of the meeting in its entirety is unfortunately not possible and accordingly, RQ will likely add some additional programming opportunities to the club’s next race meeting on Thursday, May 19.
