Friday Meeting To Revise NSW-Qld Race & Sale Dates
With officials from Racing NSW, Queensland Racing & the major sales companies meeting today to discuss revisions to the racing & sales calendar for early 2008, Thoroughbred Breeders Australia president John Messara told thoroughbrednews.co.nz: "I can't see a high level of competition early in the New Year in NSW & I think we have to put off the Sydney Autumn Carnival for as long as possible. It is my recommendation to reschedule the sales as late as possible as well." Messara also noted yearling buyers would have "a crisis of confidence if they could not see high class racing & the progeny of young stallions performing on the race track".
