RV chief executive Rob Hines said urgent remedial work was required at Moe, Kyneton, Benalla & Yarra Valley. And RV chief operating officer Bernard Saundry confirmed: "We have gone through Evergreen to get some plots that we can drop in & we will do that at Moe in 3 sections of the track where clay pipes have been disrupted to get us back racing. Basically it sits on the drainage. The track gets excavated down to the drainage bed & a piece of turf will drop in on top of the pipes."
