Racing NSW chief executive Peter V’landys thinks the Victoria Racing Club should change the date of the Melbourne Cup.
V’Landys was in Melbourne on Tuesday to attend the Melbourne Racing Club’s Caulfield Guineas function where they released the field for the Schillaci Stakes which gives the winner an entry in the $14m Everest.
“The Melbourne Cup will be successful wherever you put it,” V’Landys told 7 News.
“They (VRC) should look at it as a national industry.
“They shouldn’t look at it as a Victorian racing industry.
“I don’t think the way it is at the moment is of benefit to the Victorian racing industry let alone the national industry.”
