Wyong To Become Major Training Centre

Thursday, 6th April 2006

Wyong Race Course (just north of Sydney) "is poised to become a major training centre, with Wyong Race Club to spend almost $1 million upgrading & improving facilities at the track," reported racenet.com.au. Work will start at the end of this month on "tearing up the old cinders track & replacing it with an all weather Viscoride training track"; a major upgrade of the sand training track (which included improved drainage & new sand) was completed last month. The Viscoride track (encompassing the latest polymer & fibre technology) will be the 1st in NSW & "is similar to the all-weather track at Caulfield" in Melbourne. The 2 training tracks will be complimented by the grass track "rated 1 of the best in Australia". Wyong Race Club chief executive Tony Drew commented: "The success of the all-weather track at Caulfield convinced us Viscoride was the best option. The number of trainers at Wyong & the number of horses in work is increasing almost every month & we want to provide them with the best facilities possible. This means horses will be able to be worked no matter how much rain has fallen."
