All Victorian battle group meetings on Saturday are known as down with extreme heat forecast throughout the state.
Rushing Victoria had currently rescheduled Flemington towards early morning with a 10.45am begin whenever predicted temperature ended up being 39 degrees.
a revised forecast of 41 prompted the choice to abandon all conferences considering safe practices issues.
Besides Flemington, group meetings at Colac, Wangaratta and Yea are also abandoned.
"we must give consideration to not just the welfare regarding the horses but of the industry participants that work to put the meeting on, " senior Racing Victoria manager Greg Carpenter said..
"it is not a choice done gently although final time such a telephone call ended up being made was on February 7, 2009, which was Black Saturday.
"Hopefully those circumstances usually do not get back however it seems like becoming an incredibly hot day."
Two of this races from Flemington's abandoned conference may be relocated to Sandown on Wednesday.
Carpenter stated that rushing in Victoria faced a heavy workload on the Christmas-New 12 months duration, making it burdensome for Saturday's conference to be transferred.
