1. Ripping of large all weather track

The large all weather track was ripped today to a depth of 5 1/2″ to relieve surface hardness. The track will be expected to ride similar to the meeting on 6 January 2019 after it had been ripped on 2 January 2019, weather permitting.

2. Verti-drain on Sha Tin turf track

The verti-drain was used on the Sha Tin turf track to alleviate surface hardness according to the following schedules:

24 Dec – 2 Jan A to C Course
7 – 8 Jan C+3 Course and the remaining area

On completion of the works, the areas were lightly rolled as per previous practice.
