The Australian Turf Club will take a bath for a couple of hundred thousand dollars after next Saturday's Kensington meeting at Randwick had to be moved to Rosehill because the course proper was found to also not be suitable for racing. Randwick was nearly sold out for the day, but neither of its tracks are capable of holding a race meeting. The Kensington track was shut down by stewards after a disgraceful surface was served up on November 22. The club wanted to instead run the meeting on the course proper, which had undergone a recent renovation, but that idea was shut down. Racing NSW chief steward Ray Murrihy walked the track with ATC racing manager Matt Rudolph on Thursday and said it would not have given a fair racing surface. "They did the remedial work in two sections, the inside nine metres first and the outside nine metres a week later because we had to move a meeting on November to the course proper from the 'Kenso'," Murrihy said. "The outside section would not be ready to race [in parts] and would have presented an uneven surface. At this time of year another week as was planned will give the right racing surface for Villiers day." Rudolph and ATC racetracks manager Lindsay Murphy flew out for Japan on Friday to represent the club at the Japan Cup and talk to trainers and owners about The Championships. ATC chief executive Darren Pearce said the decision to move had been made but the club had tossed up taking it to Warwick Farm and "wanted to see how it performed on Friday". The announcement was made before Saturday's meeting and Rosehill is considered the best option as it gives the club a chance of moving those who had booked at Randwick, which was nearly sold out for next Saturday. "We will definitely be at Randwick on Villiers Stakes day, the track just needs the time to recover and be at its best," Pearce said. "We give our clients the choice of coming to Rosehill and there will be a phantom meeting at Randwick." The move of the meeting completed a horror week for the club, which lost 95 per cent of bookings for Friday's Kensington meeting when it was moved to Warwick Farm. The club has also been forced by Racing NSW to move the Canterbury night meeting on January 23 to the public holiday Monday on Australia Day after an oversight in programming. Murrihy has instructed the club to move the January 21 meeting from Kensington to allow time to get the track back to racing standard.
