Avondale Cancelled

Recommended Posts

Not a good sign but just to keep Barry happy its happened before.  February/March have always been a time when the horses racing have been low but I can't help but think that it has been exacerbated in the last few years by the "programming" of the big races at Ellerslie at this time of low numbers.

Avondale Races Cancelled

 

Due to a lack of horses the Avondale Races for Wednesday 19 February have been cancelled. A Mdn 1200m and Mdn 3YOF 1400m (Pearl Race) have been added to the Counties programme on 27 February. NZTR and the club are open to dividing a further race at Counties if necessary.

Should be cancelled for good.  Went there two years ago and it was an absolute shithole dump and couldn't get out of there fast enough unfortunately it was 5 oclock and it took me  over and hour to get on the the southern motorway, and another hour to get off it. never again.

The place is abhorrent...the Avondale committee are just so small minded and petty that they cannot see the bigger picture for the industry. People like Jan Skinner and co

Positivity is not a strength you possess Mark, but yes I agree with the above 2 posters its a dump in its current state.

The website says major changes are planned, worth a read.
