Racing Stoppage Allows Scone Track Renovation
Meanwhile Scone Race Club secretary Helen Sinclair told racenet.com.au that, with "no way racing will be allowed at Scone until the equine influenza problem is brought under control", the enforced break "gives us an opportunity to renovate the racing surface." She noted: "We were going to do it anyway, but we can make it a much more extensive renovation & take our time with it. The track needed a complete renovation after the drought & the extra time we now have will help us produce a perfect racing surface, particularly for the carnival next May."
