Seymour (Vic) - Thursday 10th and Friday 25th May 2018

Racing Victoria (RV) advises that two race meetings scheduled at Seymour on Thursday, 10 May and Friday, 25 May have been transferred to Echuca and Werribee, respectively.
The decision to transfer the meetings was made in consultation with the Seymour Racing Club, and follows ongoing investigations into the performance of the track surface which raced below expectations at the Club’s last meeting on Tuesday, 10 April.
The poor performance has been linked to a deteriorating condition in the root structure of the Seymour turf, however some soil tests which have been conducted so far have not identified the underlying cause of the deterioration.
RV, in consultation with the Club, will continue to communicate further updates regarding the condition of the track and the results of the outstanding soil tests once these are known.
In the meantime, RV and the Club have agreed that the track will not return to racing until it has satisfactorily completed suitable gallops and jump outs.
