ATC Moves Gr1 Epsom From October Long Weekend
The Australian Turf Club has not scheduled Gr1 Epsom Day on the October holiday long weekend in 2012 for only the 2nd time ever. Instead the ATC will hold Stan Fox Stakes day at Rosehill on Saturday September 29 (start of the long weekend) with the Gr1 Epsom Handicap meeting at Randwick on October 6. In addition, with Royal Randwick undergoing redevelopment & crowd numbers limited, Sydney's traditional major Melbourne Cup Day meeting (November 6 this year) has been shifted to Rosehill Gardens, while Randwick will host a "picnic" meeting limited to 10,000 patrons.
