Harness Racing Menangle Park
Foundation work for a new 1400 metre track has started at Menangle Park for what is tipped to become a benchmark for the Australian Harness Racing Industry.
Deputy Chairman Rex Horne is adamant that when completed it will be the best track anywhere in Australasia, “there is no reason why horses won’t be able to run 1.54 1.53” he said.
When Cambelltown Council approves the final development approval U.S.A. track designer Dan Coon will oversee the finishing touches such as preparing the racing surface.
The master plan for Menangle which should go before council in December also includes a refurbishment of the existing members and public facilities and the construction of a training facility with permanent stables.
It is estimated that the completion date will be late in 2007
