KwaZulu-Natal has been drenched by record-breaking rainfall over the past few days, with Hollywoodbets Greyville having received a total of 247mm during this time.
As of Wednesday morning, penetrometer readings in some areas of the track were as high as 45.
With current overcast conditions, the chances of the track drying up sufficiently for Thursday’s race meeting is remote and Gold Circle has taken an early decision to move the race meeting to the Polytrack.
Race 1 is off at 16:30.
Meanwhile, more than 150mm of rain has fallen at Hollywoodbets Scottsville over the past few days and the penetrometer readings as at noon on Wednesday varied from 35 to 58.
With more rain predicted for the weekend, an early decision has been made to move the race meeting scheduled for Sunday to Greyville.
Every attempt will be made to stage this race meeting on the turf but that will depend on the weather.
Taking all of the above into consideration, Gold Circle has made the decision to switch the race meeting on Sunday 24 April from Greyville to Scottsville.
Entries for this race meeting close Thursday, 14 April at 11am.
