02 Dec 2017 | ThoroughbredNEWS News Desk 
Due to the continuing heavy rainfall, Racing Victoria (RV) wishes to advise that Sunday's meeting at Geelong Racing Club has been switched to the Proride track.

With persistent rain rendering some sections of the turf track unfit for racing, the decision was taken in conjunction with Geelong Racing Club to move the eight-race meeting to the Proride All-Weather surface.

As a result of this transfer, there are distance changes to all races as specified below:
