Racing Vic Abandons Thursday Twilight Meetings
Racing Victoria announced it will "not continue with the conduct of Thursday twilight meetings during the 2012-13 racing season". A 3-month trial was conducted in January-March this year, with country twilight meetings staged within 90 minutes drive of Melbourne each Thursday. RV chief executive Rob Hines commented: "Wagering & participation on the twilight meetings did not meet expectations during the trial, so we have decided not to proceed with them next season. The Thursday twilight meetings, which had been programmed for the 1st quarter of 2013, will revert to day meetings & remain at the same venues."
