Warwick Turf Club training track is back in action

IF ONE man is happy to see hoofprints back on the training track, it's Warwick Turf Club committee member and trainer Len Bryant.

After two months of repairs, and about $50,000 later, the track is back in action, much to the delight of horse trainers and jockeys across the region.

Mr Bryant said having the track back to normal was a massive plus for those in the racing sector.

"Up until now we've had to rely on basic training and head out to Clifton or Toowoomba to do fast work, so it really helps so much having it close to home," he said.

"It's cost all of us financially, like I could have had another horse in work, but I didn't because of lack of facilities."

Turf Club president Jim Costello said he was keen to see horses back out on the track this weekend for the RSL Memorial Race Day.

"Hopefully it will be a good meet and we should get about 1200 (spectators) or so," Mr Costello said.
