Racing & Sports Canberra Racing Preview — 13 January 2021

The track was upgraded from a Good 4 to a Good 3 after the first race. Fast times were the order of the day.

It was regular faces to the fore, with Keith Dryden notching up three winners as his superb run this season continues. Race 1 - 1:00PM TODD SMART RACING HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
