Racing Victoria Decide Not to Proceed with Thursday Twilight Race Meetings in 2012-13 / Victoria / 16 May, 2012

Racing Victoria (RV) has announced that it will NOT continue with the conduct of Thursday twilight meetings during the 2012-13 racing season.

A three-month trial was conducted in January to March this year with country twilight meetings staged within 90 minutes drive of Melbourne each Thursday.

“Wagering and participation on the twilight meetings did not meet expectations during the trial so we have decided not to proceed with them next season,” RV Chief Executive, Rob Hines, said.

“The Thursday twilight meetings, which had been programmed for the first quarter of 2013, will revert to day meetings and remain at the same venues.”
