Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club announced on Friday afternoon, the meeting scheduled for Saturday featuring the return of Winx, would be transferred to Monday.

Racing NSW chief executive Peter V’landys said the decision was made after after contact with the Bureau of Meteorology regarding the forecast conditions.
