GBOTA Deputy Executive Officer Jeff Browne explained that the move to the early start time brings Wentworth Park race times into line with other States racing on Monday night.
“It is hoped that the early start will provide a boost in wagering turnover which will benefit all industry participants.
“The early start will also mean the last race will be at approximately 10.10 pm, giving owners and trainers the chance to get home a little earlier.
“The decision to start earlier should have positive results for all concerned,” Browne concluded.
Owners and trainers should note the new kenneling times for Wentworth Park Mondays from September 7 will be as follows:
- Races 1 to 5 5.55 pm to 6.15 pm
- Races 6 to 10 6.15 pm to 6.40 pm
