Racing Queensland (RQ) confirms that following a further track inspection this afternoon the Rockhampton Jockey Club (Capricornia Sales) Race Meeting which was rescheduled from Saturday, April 6, to tomorrow, Monday, April 8, has been abandoned. And, whilst the weather in the area has improved, the rainfall which has occurred subsequent to the meeting’s original postponement has been sufficient for officials to deem that the track is not suitable for racing on tomorrow.

RQ has, following the abandonment, collaborated with RJC officials to reschedule the club’s two flagship Cap Sales Races (2yo Classic & 3/4yo Classic) to its next meeting which is programmed for Thursday, April 18.

Fresh nominations/acceptances for these races will be called for, however for ballot purposes, those horses which were original acceptors for the two races will be afforded preference. Nominations aside, the remainder of the conditions pertaining to these remain as have been previously published. It has also been considered necessary to reschedule the Open (1200m) Handicap which has been lost through the abandonment & accordingly that race too has been added to the April 18 program – this meeting will now comprise 12 races.

Deadlines (Nomination/Acceptance) for the 3 rescheduled races on April 18 will be the same as have been previously published by RQ for the race meeting in its entirety.
