Melbourne Spring Carnival Change
Racing Victoria has announced a further amendment to this year's spring carnival, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Makybe Diva Stakes meeting at Flemington will be switched with Moonee Valley's Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes day. The Gr2 Dato Tan Chin Nam will now be run on 6 September, one week before the Gr1 Makybe Diva. "The swap of dates separates our first two Group One races of the season by two weeks which ensures the races flow into each other and thus have the opportunity to assemble the best fields possible," said RV executive general manager of racing Greg Carpenter.
