Aerial vision of the Ballarat Turf Club has shown the magnitude of the multi-million dollar project to revamp the course.
Works to the outer turf circuit are in full swing, with the construction of an all-weather synthetic track to soon begin.
“The turf that’s on the inner track now, which is going to be our synthetic, they are going to cut the turf off that and relay it onto the outer track (new course proper),” O’Neil said.
O’Neil said drainage works on the turf track were scheduled to begin next week before turf is laid in mid-January.
He said BTC staff didn’t have a major role in the project, but were still taking a keen interest in its progress.
“I’ve never really been at a racecourse that’s done this much work. I wasn’t at Ballarat when they took the dip out of the track.
“It’s good to be involved in a project of this magnitude.”
