The weather in Sydney tomorrow (Friday) will determine the track condition for the huge Royal Randwick meeting on Saturday.

Track Manager Nevesh Rhamdani this morning told Racing Network the track could be anything from a dead to a heavy surface.

He said it “all depends on what happens here tomorrow”.

“They are forecasting showers and some rain in Sydney tomorrow but it depends on how much we get.

"If we don’t get any more rain the track could get to a dead surface on Saturday, but if we get quite a bit it will be down in the slow, even heavy range again,” Rhamdani explained to RN.

He said Royal Randwick had received 5.8mls on Tuesday and 17mls in the past seven days, but said in the second half of August the track was deluged with an amazing 210mls of rain.

“Considering how much rain we had in August the track has done remarkably well,” he said.

Rhamdani said the weather in Sydney this morning (Thursday) was very cold and very windy.

“The wind is coming straight off the snow and it’s really cold and blowing a gale,” he said.

The weather in and around Sydney over the past few weeks has played havoc with the racing industry in NSW.
