Kyneton meeting abandoned

Racing Victoria stewards' abandoned the Kyneton meeting from Race 5 at 4.25pm post weighing out on Tuesday due to the track conditions from storms and heavy rain.

The eight-race card had been impacted early on when thunderstorms and lightning caused a long delay but the meeting was called off after the rain came as it left surface water on the track.

The chief steward for the meeting, James Hitchcock, said stewards deemed conditions were unsafe and that forecasts were for the storms to continue through the afternoon so there looked no chance of a let up in the conditions.
