WET conditions have ended the Shoalhaven Turf Club's chances of hosting their inaugural country championships qualifier, with Sunday's meet shifting to Moruya.
After a track inspection on Friday morning at Nowra's Archer Racecourse, it was deemed the surface "unsuitable to race on" - due to the heavy rain that has fallen on the South Coast the past seven days.
As a result, the eight-race meet will now be held at the Moruya Jockey Club, which is currently rated a soft (seven) and is expected to improve.
Three of the races, including the 1400m country championships qualifier, 1400m class two plate and 1200m class two, will have no change to their distance.
But there have been amendments to the other five race distances.
The maiden race two and the maiden handicap have both increased from 1100m to 1200m, while the 1600m maiden plate has added 50m to the course.
The 1600m benchmark 66 handicap has also increased by 50m, while the 1000m benchmark 66 is now 1010m.
