The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

A resched­uled Mur­toa Cup will go ahead on Sun­day af­ter a last-minute post­pone­ment at the week­end.

A burst wa­ter pipe caused of­fi­cials to de­clare the Mur­toa track un­safe on Satur­day morn­ing, forc­ing a reschedul­ing of the meet.

While the date of the meet­ing has been changed, there will still be plenty on of­fer at the track, in­clud­ing face paint­ing and a jump­ing cas­tle for chil­dren.

Track­side um­brella pack­ages are avail­able for pur­chase, with each um­brella-cov­ered table seat­ing 10 peo­ple.

The on-track ac­tion will fea­ture the first heat of the Mel­bourne Cup Car­ni­val Coun­try Se­ries, as well as the $45,000 fea­ture race.

En­tries for the resched­uled race opened on Mon­day and will close at noon to­day.

Peo­ple can book tick­ets on­line via Coun­try Rac­ing Vic­to­ria web­site or at the gate.
