Clifford Park, Toowoomba, is one of the State's largest training centres, supplying many winners to tracks around SE Qld.

In a controversial move, the Toowomba Turf Club installed a new Cushion track as the course proper in the first half of 2009.

The first meeting on the new surface was held on Saturday, July 11, 2009.  The meeting was run in the late afternoon/evening under "metropolitan conditions" and included the historic Weetwood Handicap and Toowoomba Cup.  Before a crowd of 8000, visitor VOICE COMMANDER won the Weetwood for young Nick Olive; JUSSEMI won the Cup for local Rex Lipp.

Let's use this thread for comments on racing at Toowoomba.

Tuesday, 31 December, 2013, the grass track reopens.

Eight races tomorrow night.  TTC will be pleased with the response.

Wonder why the early start/finish.  Think we can be pretty sure the TAB holds will kick up.  Thumb Up

Should be home for the last.  fingers crossed

Commands mare URBANE resumes for Lacey.  She has ridden her into placings as a jockey.  Not a common scenario.

$8.50 seems good odds to me.  Great Idea

Reason for the early start of Twba was to allow punters to concentrate on Interdominion heats.

Yeah, right.  lol

Was a brave win by Shinzig gelding CONTRAVENTION at just his second start.

Skye had to come wide on the turn, and her urgings got him home narrowly.

If a horse is in the market in its first start and doesn't perform, I've found it pays to follow it up next race. Great ride from Skye.

Caller AT had trouble with KOKADOODLEDOO when he was racing in Brissie under BJ Smith.

Now he's in Twba with Patrick Sexton and with a G after his name.

A double-header on the Downs this weekend.  thumbsup

Not sure I can see a winner, though.

Maybe some scope for a roughie in the last.  Shrug

NATURE BITES and KESTHIN are both huge odds the drum, and worth the gamble, IMO.

Mate, Friday was originally supposed to be an Ipswich meeting.
Transferring it to Toowoomba makes perfect sense, as all the trainers and horses that would have gone to Ipswich can easily go to Toowoomba instead.
If you transfer it to the North, then the Ipswich crowd (whose meeting it should have been) miss out altogether.
