A second consecutive Kembla Grange meeting was abandoned on Tuesday, this time due to wet weather.
After copping 75 millimetres (mls) of rain over the past week, including 16 mls on the morning of the seven race card, stewards opted to abandon the meeting.
“We went out this morning and the track was no worse than a heavy 9 but within the next hour or so it had deteriorated,” Illawarra Turf Club racing manager Michael Craig said.
The meeting won’t be rescheduled at a later date.
Kembla Grange already lost a meeting on February 11 due to a heat wave which caused racing to be cancelled around most of the state.
The next meeting will be Classic Day next Friday, March 10.
Leading trainer Gwenda Markwell, who has won 14 straight titles, remains at the top of the Kembla trainers premiership with six wins for the season, with Kerry Parker in hot pursuit on three victories.
Sydney premiership winning trainer Chris Waller leads the overall trainers premiership on 72 points.
Chad Lever and Jeff Penza are level on 76 points at the top of the jockeys premiership while Blake MacDougall (28.5 points) holds a slender advantage over Brock Ryan (27 points) in the apprentices race.
