After a mixed weekend in the world of racing that included the opening Group race of the Sydney Autumn Carnival and a washout at Caulfield Racecourse, the weekly race action kicks off again today with three TAB meets scheduled this Monday, February 7.
Racing will take place in country Victoria and New South Wales today giving punters a number of chances to enjoy an early win off the horses this week before the first Group 1 showdown of the season, the 2011 CF Orr Stakes, sets Caulfield alive on Saturday.
