Queensland officials are confident they have overcome a water shortage at Kilcoy and the country track will be in much better condition for its next TAB meeting.

Kilcoy, which once boasted Queensland’s best racing surface, is taking up the load because Ipswich, the usual midweek venue, is closed for a track upgrade.

The Kilcoy club has long used waste water but government authorities stepped in and stopped the practice after a local resident complained it was a health hazard.

The result was a hard and dusty track for Kilcoy’s TAB meeting last Thursday week.

Racing Queensland chief executive Darren Condon said extra water trucks had been utilised in the past fortnight.

“In the long term we are looking at drilling bores and accessing creek water,” Condon said.

Just 60 nominations have been received for Thursday’s meeting.

Meanwhile, hard tracks continue to play havoc with Brisbane runners after the predicted rain did not arrive at the weekend.

It is back to the drawing board for trainer Robert Heathcote with promising mare Magic in Motion who was lame after the Big Print Hcp (1200m) on Saturday.

She was one of several well fancied runners at Eagle Farm reported to be sore after their races.

Trainer Barry Baldwin said Flying home appeared OK after his disappointing run in the Member’s Cup but the gelding had not appreciated the hard track.

Flying Home is likely to have an ease-up in preparation for races such as the Ipswich Cup this winter.
