General manager Tim Long inspected the track at 8am but found the course to be unraceable after heavy rain throughout Monday.

"We had 22 millimetres of rain in total yesterday and that has left the ground completely saturated with areas of standing water," he said.

"From Wednesday of last week to Sunday, we had 60mm of rain and then we had another 22mm and even with a dry forecast, I'm sure it would not dry out in time

"We have more rain forecast tonight and into tomorrow though, so we thought it best to make a decision and let everyone know."
