Mudgee Racetrack Battered By Major Storm (Weds)

Mudgee Racecourse was hit by a major storm yesterday causing plenty of damage to the track and its surrounds.

Deputy Chairman of Stewards for Central Districts & Western Racing Associations, Sam Fitzgerald, said two sections of rail at the 800m and the 600m had been brought down by falling tree limbs and debris.

"There was quite a bit of debris on the track, but mainly small branches and bark, with some larger branches around the perimeter of the track and to the entrance to the main facilities," Fitzgerald reported. "A large gum tree had completely collapsed and was blocking the entry to the grandstand area. The two large demountable marquees were also disassembled and scattered over some distance.

"Local trainers and their staff cleared the sand and grasses tracks and they worked on the sand this morning without incident. Max Walker and Mudgee Race Club are fixing up the rail and the larger debris today with the grass to be back in action tomorrow."
