Murtoa Cup set for Sunday
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.
