BROOME TURF CLUB - TRACK STATEMENT - MARCH 2016

The Broome Turf Club aims to provide a track that is safe, fair and industry compliant for all jockeys, apprentices, horses and their connections.

Broome Turf Club is in the process of overhauling all aspects of it’s track management and maintenance procedures for the 2016 racing season. Issues previously encountered with the quality of the track running surface are being rectified with the assistance of expert Engineers, Scientists and Industry Consultants.

We are seeking to extend our commitment to environmental sustainability in 2016 and beyond by ensuring all aspects of the track preparation are undertaken in an appropriate and responsible manner.

Broome Turf Club with the assistance of it’s partners have recently prepared an Environmental Management Plan for all aspects of track operations, including preparation, maintenance and race-day management.

It is anticipated that the Environmental Management Plan shall evolve further during the 2016 season.

The club is fully committed to hosting an exciting 2016 race season and look forward to welcoming everyone on course to be part of the action.
