NSW meetings in doubt
Coast and in the Riverina region have been called off because of bush fires and smoke haze while others in the state are under threat from extreme heat. Yesterday’s Sapphire Coast meeting was called off while Moruya’s meeting on Monday has also been lost.
Tumut tomorrow has been rescheduled for January 18. Racing NSW will invoke a Level 2 Hot Weather Policy for Muswellbrook today with the temperature forecast to reach 41 degrees. The same level will be in force at Albury with a forecast 40 degrees and concern over the poor air quality will continue to be monitored.
Gilgandra in the central west is also in doubt and if the forecast for 43 degrees remains it will be called off.
