Work is starting on a $8.9 million new Martin Collins Polytrack project at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club, which is one of the busiest training centres in the State.
Martin Collins Australia were awarded the contract by Racing Minister Grace Grace. They have started to install the new all-weather Polytrack surface at Corbould Park, where about 400 horses are trained daily. Corbould Park is one of Queensland’s busiest training centres, as well as a key racing venue. Polytrack will replace the old surface which will be a significant upgrade on the cushion one installed 13 years ago.Technology has advanced rapidly since the original synthetic track was laid, and the Sunshine Coast will boast a Polytrack surface that will provide enhanced training facilities, along with greater flexibility in race scheduling
Funded by the Queensland Government, Racing Queensland and Sunshine Coast Turf Club, the project is expected to take about nine months. Prominent local trainer Nat McCall says the new all-weather Polytrack will bolster Corbould Park significantly, replacing a “tired” surface. “The new Polytrack is going to have some great benefits for us here at Caloundra, being an all-weather track, it’s great for is, because we get plenty of water here and we also get some hot weather as well, so this will be a nice consistent surface for us.”
