WANGARATTA Turf Club’s racetrack is set to close for almost a year to undergo a major renovation.

The $273,000 upgrade announced by Racing Victoria yesterday will include resurfacing works which will eradicate all poa annua and bent grass from the track.

It will be replaced with an improved kikuyu surface which can withstand the pressures of regular racing.

The project will also include the application of approximately 3000 cubic metres of sand which will help to level the track and improve its camber.

The track resurfacing works will commence following the club’s next meeting tomorrow week, with racing scheduled to resume on Melbourne Cup Day next year.

Club chief executive Paul Hoysted said he was grateful to receive funding assistance from Racing Victoria, Country Racing Victoria and Victorian Racing Industry Fund for the project.

“At present we have more than 130 horses working on the track each morning,” Hoysted said.

“This renovation, which complements the irrigation upgrade recently completed at the track, will place Wangaratta on a sound footing to continue to evolve into a major regional racing and training centre.

“The upgrade will allow the club to potentially hold extra race meetings, jump-outs and official trials which will assist the industry and bring benefits for the local community.

“The project will mean that a total of $3.5 million has been spent on training and racing infrastructure improvements at Wangaratta over the last four years.

“We’re looking forward to hosting a successful meeting on December 20 before the upgrade works begin.”

Wangaratta’s next five meetings have already been allocated to Benalla on January 2 and March 1.

Kyneton (January 13), Tatura (March 17) and Echuca (April 24) will also stage transferred meetings.

Wodonga and District Turf Club’s course is also set for a major makeover early next month.

The widening of the home straight from 14 metres to 18 metres and also improvements to the camber of the track will be part of the upgrade.
