Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) has agreed to trial a sprint lane extension at Tabcorp Park Melton following a submission from the Victorian Trainers and Drivers Association (VTDA).

The sprint lane will be extended by 40 metres for an initial one-month trial.

The basis of the trial is to assess the pattern of racing and evaluate whether the extension provides horses with greater opportunities to win.

The new sprint lane will see the red peg positioned at the 190m mark and the sprint lane completely open at 168m.

The initial trial will run from Wednesday March 14 up to and including Friday April 13.

HRV is encouraging feedback from all industry stakeholders, including participants and punters during the trial.

To have your say, email info@hrv.org.au and include ‘Sprint Lane Trial’ in your email subject.
