Wentworth Park track on Friday morning.

Severe overnight rainfall, uncertainty around the continuation of the inclement weather today and tomorrow, and following a track inspection this morning, Greyhound Racing NSW has made the decision to officially reschedule one of the country's premier events, the Ladbrokes Golden Easter Egg.

The series will go back a week and now conclude on April 20, following the abandonment of tonight’s (Friday) race meeting at Wentworth Park and tomorrow night’s (Saturday’s) Wentworth Park meeting where the semi-finals of the Group 1 Golden Easter Egg were to be contested.

With the uncertainty around when the weather would ease and allow the track staff to perform significant remedial maintenance on the racing surface, and with several participants travelling long distances to race, it was decided that an early decision was best for all stakeholders and participants.

The two race meetings will now be held on Friday April 12 and Saturday April 13, with the $350,000 final of the Group 1 Ladbrokes Golden Easter Egg to now be held a week later on April 20.

Fresh nominations will be called for the heats of the Group 3 Ausure Ultra Sense and the GRNSW Masters events which were programmed for tonight. The heats will now be run on Friday April 12.

For the race meeting on April 13, the four semi-finals of the Ladbrokes Golden Easter Egg will remain unchanged. Fresh nominations will be called for the heats of the Group 1 Farrell’s Association Cup.

The finals of the Group 3 Magic Maiden and the Group 3 Simply Limelight New Sensation will be run as planned on April 13.

On April 20 at Wentworth Park, the finals of the Group 1 Ladbrokes Golden Easter Egg, the Group 1 Farrell’s Association Cup, the Group 3 Ultra Sense, the Group 3 Ambrosoli, and the GRNSW Masters will all be run.

Eraring extension risks higher power bills and kids’ health

May 23, 2024 Parents for Climate is appalled by the NSW Government’s decision to back coal instead of clean energy by extending the life of Australia’s largest coal-fired power station, Eraring, near Newcastle. Nic Seton, CEO for Parents for Climate said: “This go-slow decision on climate action undermines investment in clean energy and increases dangerous climate pollution that is harming NSW families now. Families struggling with bills want to see governments invest in long-term solutions that lower electricity bills, not expensive delays to our clean energy transition. “We know that clean energy is the best way to reduce power bills…
