BROWNED OFF AT TRACK STATE
BARE stretches at desolate Eagle Farm (pictured) racecourse suggest that a spring timeline for horses’ return will need an inside run.
Bedding soil for up to 1100m of missing grass was hard to spot when Traps took a squiz last week.
New trees are in, cranes and walls are up for the track’s Nudgee Rd shops, an apartment block is rising, but not eno enough grass is d down.
Racing Queensland boss Eliot Forb bes (pictured) re reckons more g grass will go in “after the sand profile is deemed ready”.
EF chair Nev Bell passed the buck: “Eagle Farm track renovation project continues to be managed by RQ with the aim to return to racing by spring.”
But which spring?
