HARDEN District Picnic Race Club have been given the all clear to push ahead with their Cup meeting on Saturday.
Southern District chief steward John Davidson inspected the track on Wednesday and gave the track a glowing endorsement.
“It’s all systems go. The track and surrounds are in magnificent order,” Davidson said.
“It’s as good as I’ve seen a picnic track. It’s a credit to the club.”
The track was rated a soft six on Wednesday but has good crass cover.
The club received 13 nominations for the $8000 Picnic Cup with hometown hope The Conqueror at the top of the weights for Harden trainer Robert Leitner.
The fields for the six-race card will be out on Thursday.
