NIGHT rac­ing re­turns to Can­ter­bury Park on Fri­day with a seven-race pro­gram.

Rac­ing un­der lights is a spec­tac­u­lar sight and Can­ter­bury lends it­self to night rac­ing given the prox­im­ity of the crowd to the track.

The Fri­day night meet­ing at Can­ter­bury co­in­cides with the Group 1 Manikato Stakes pro­gram at Moonee Val­ley.

Can­ter­bury isn’t used of­ten for Satur­day meet­ings but the Aus­tralian Turf Club has pro­grammed two meet­ings at the pop­u­lar venue on Novem­ber 7 and Jan­uary 9. TRACK STAYS GOOD ROYAL Rand­wick has its fourth con­sec­u­tive Syd­ney Satur­day this week­end.
