BROWNED OFF AT TRACK STATE

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS | TRAPS -

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?
