The Sabeto Horse Race had to be called off yesterday due to rain and unfavorable weather in Nadi.
Organisers only managed to complete seven races on day as fans in numbers turned out to witness this years event.
Event organiser Kim Beddoes says unfortunately due to the rain that was experienced throughout the day, the condition of the tracks was not at a standard that they felt was safe for the horses and jockeys to continue racing.
Beddoes says after consulting with the teams at Animals Fiji and Volunteer First Responder – Fiji the decision to canel racing and close the tracks was made.
The total prize money that was up for grabs in all 3 races will be split evenly amongst all horses that were registered to run races 8, 9 & 10 and paid out to them next week.
