More preparation work at Eagle Farm

Work is continuing on the Eagle Farm track surface in preparation for its next major test with its second race meeting within a few weeks.

The new Eagle Farm racetrack surface has had further work in the lead-up to its next race meeting.

The newly renovated Eagle Farm track had its first major test with nine races on December 22 and got glowing reviews.


Eagle Farm had been closed for much of the past four years because of problems with its redevelopment.

Track staff worked through the Christmas/New Year break to ensure the track would be ready for its next meeting.

Brisbane Racing Club Chairman Neville Bell said things had been going well.

"It has had a haircut. It has been verti drained and fertilised. An inch of rain this week would be nice but failing that it will be irrigated," Bell said.

Eagle Farm will have its first feature day when the annual Girls Day Out, which usually attracts a large crowd, is held on February 23.

The track will also host two major days during the winter carnival featuring the Group One Stradbroke Handicap meeting and Group One Queensland Derby day.

The Queensland Oaks meeting is likely to be at Doomben.
