WYD deals off the table: trainers

Randwick Racecourse trainers have responded with hostility to a new plan by World Youth Day organisers to "minimise disruption".

The organisers' latest plan is to reduce next July's closure of the venue from ten weeks to three days.

Racing NSW chief executive Peter V'Landys said at a crisis meeting yesterday that WYD organisers should "start making some informed decisions, and in a hurry".

Next Friday has been designated the cut-off date for organisers to provide a works schedule.

V'Landys believes the likely option is for horses to be transferred to Warwick Farm and Rosehill during the upheaval at Randwick.
