The Louth Turf Club will brush off the disappointment of last weekend’s cancelled race meeting, and this Sunday, the committee will convene to start planning next year’s event.

Club President, Jim Strachan, said the club was gearing up for the 2023 meeting to be bigger and better than ever before, after what will be four years waiting for the starter’s orders.

And while there were faint hopes the committee might consider asking for a revised date for later this year, Jim said the committee was determined to focus on next year’s event and put this one behind it.

“Everyone knows that August is the Louth Races, and that we are an iconic event, and for that reason we won’t be seeking another date for this season,” Jim said.

“Racing NSW put us down as a postponement, but we don’t postpone, we cancel, because we are known for our date, and we don’t change it.

“It was bitterly disappointing to have to cancel but we had to - there was no choice with the rain and the road closures and the condition of the track.
