The new Polytrack training surface at Hawkesbury has passed its first test with a soft opening ahead of a full workload.

A dozen locally trained horses were given light work-outs on the track on Monday morning.

The Brad Widdup-trained Ajani, partnered by track rider Mikey Wade, was the first horse on the synthetic surface.

Chinese apprentice Qin Yong then rode Ajani’s stablemate before other stables worked their horses.

On hand were Hawkesbury chief executive Greg Rudolph, Martin Collins Australia managing director Reid Sanders, track manager Jeff Haynes, business manager Lea Porteous, and the track team.
