2012 Caloundra Cup Day Fields Delayed

Acceptances for this Saturday’s Caloundra Cup Day 2012 at the Sunshine Coast have been delayed due to the extreme wet weather in Queensland.

Originally Racing Queensland was to release the final fields for the eight-race program, which includes three black type features, at 9am this morning.

Final acceptances however have been held off until the same time on Thursday.

“This is a conscious decision insuring that stakeholders have some confidence of the racing status for this meeting,” Racing Queensland said on their official website.

The course proper at the Sunshine Coast is currently rated a Heavy (9) borderline Heavy (10) after an additional 25mm of rain fell overnight, the wet weather not expected to ease until the weekend.

If the course proper goes past a Heavy (10) it will officially be unsafe for racing.

Instead of simply abandoning the Caloundra Cup Day completely it is reported that Racing Queensland are considering using the Sunshine Coast’s divisive cushion track.

If the move to the cushion track was to happen then the day’s stakes races – the $200,000 Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m), $175,000 Listed Glasshouse Handicap (1400m) and the $100,000 Listed Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) – would lose their black-type status.

As always Races.com.au will be publishing the full Sunshine Coast Saturday race acceptances once released.

Punters will be praying the weather lets up and the track is allowed time to dry up so as the excellent Queensland Winter Racing Carnival action of Caloundra Cup Day can go ahead as scheduled.

Regardless of where the races are run the best weekend horse racing odds will be found online at our No. 1 recommended online bookie bookmaker.com.au.
