It's wet but punters advised to keep Friday free for TAB day

RACING: It is full stream ahead with the Warwick Turf Club President's Day Meeting on Friday despite the wet weather.

While things can quickly change with the weather, president Phil Grant said the course could take another 25mm overnight and racing would go ahead provided it fined up tomorrow.

"We have had 42mm at the track so far,” he said.

"The track would be currently somewhere between a soft seven and heavy eight,” he said at 3.30pm Tuesday.

Before a race meeting, Grant said the club usually irrigated the course to the equivalent of at least 25mm rain.

"At the moment, we have only had another 15mm than we would normally put on the track,” he said.

The club has attracted 123 nominations for seven races on Friday.

The meeting was shifted late last week to Warwick due to the wet track at Gatton.

Grant said the Warwick race day would be the only TAB meeting in Queensland on Friday.

"Sky Central is coming up and will have commentators on course,” he said.

Admission is free and the bar and canteen will operate. Bookies will be on course along with the TAB.
