The KHRRC advised RV that it would be difficult for the Club to implement the required COVID safe measures at Hanging Rock for their 26 January meeting and as such it is their desire to transfer the meeting to Kyneton.

"Under the current public event requirements, Hanging Rock Racecourse would not be able to facilitate a COVID safe environment unlike bet365 Park Kyneton which is better suited to ensure the Club meets its obligations," KHRRC General Manager, Jon Dight, said. 

"Whilst the race meeting is still over a fortnight away and there is the potential for changes to requirements in that time, it is important that we give our members, racing fans and participants certainty now on where our Club will be racing on Australia Day.

"We now look forward to welcoming members and fans to Kyneton for the bet365 Hanging Rock Cup on Australia Day under COVID safe protocols. Anyone wishing to attend will need to pre-purchase tickets and I encourage them to visit our website from next week."

The updated program, with distance changes, at bet365 Park Kyneton is as follows:

bet365 Park Kyneton – 26 January 2021
Maiden Plate 1100m (was 1000m) $15,000
