Mornington races called off

Friday’s wild weather has seen the meeting at Mornington abandoned.

Racing Victoria stewards made the call on Friday morning with high winds ripping across the state.

“Sections of running rail have come down in current gusts of 70 km/h. BOM has predicted wind gusts in excess of 100 km/h in coming hours,” RV stewards said in a statement.

“Horses engaged at today’s abandoned Mornington meeting can nominate as original entries by 3pm today for Ladbrokes Park on Weds 13 Sept.

“We will review the racing program to determine whether there are suitable alternative options across the next fortnight for others.”
