TIME SLOT CHANGES AIMED AT MAXIMIZING OPPORTUNITIES19/02/2024
GRV and MGRA have confirmed following a success pilot of The Meadows Wednesday race meetings (MEP) being held during the 'Night' time slot, the scheduling will continue for the remainder of the 2023/24 racing season.
During the trial period, there was an increase in average nominations and starters whilst turnover remained consistent during a challenging wagering period. From a club's perspective, on course patronage and hospitality increased significantly.
A further trial will take place during the months of May, June and July 2024 which involves Sandown Park (SAP) race meetings being held on Monday Nights instead of the regular Sunday Day timeslot. Currently all three race meetings being held on Sundays are East of Melbourne and the change will hopefully create more opportunities for more trainers over the weekend. To facilitate the trial, Ballarat's Tier 3 meeting will be held on Sunday's and Shepparton will race during the Day slot on Mondays. During the pilot, race meetings held during the Ballarat Cup and Sandown Cup period may change.
A review of key metrics will take place towards the end of the trial.
