With a forecast maximum temperature of 35 degrees, the Level 1 Hot Weather Policy has been invoked at Albury’s race meeting on Saturday.
Race club officials will have ice, water, scrapers and extra hoses available to assist in the cooling of horses
Stewards will minimise the time that horses are required to parade or be held in mounting enclosures both pre- and post-race or behind the starting barriers.
Horses must be allowed sufficient time to adequately cool down before being floated back to their stables.
Stewards will continue to monitor any further weather predictions
