Auckland experienced extremely high winds overnight along with heavy rain. After an inspection of Avondale Racecourse this morning it was decided, to call the meeting off at 6.20am, due to extensive damage to the stabling area.

The roof of the main stable block had be partly torn off, along with fallen trees and extensive debris. Several of the advertising hoardings had also be blown over as well as a parts of the running rail with a lot of debris across the track, including a fallen tree in the back straight.

It is unfortunate as the racing surface was in good condition, despite approximately 100 millimetres of rain having fallen of the past 36 hours.
