Flemington Track Downgraded to Slow for 2010 Melbourne Cup Day

The 2010 Melbourne Cup Day races are set to be run on a Slow Flemington track today after the course was downgraded from its Heavy 5 rating to a Slow 6.

With slight showers hitting the famous Flemington track, home to the $6 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at 3:00pm (AEDST) today, this morning the ground is now mildly rain affected track more suited to the wet trackers.
