It’s not us, it’s you, TAB. An irate punter called The Age to complain about our form guide being incorrect – stating that Thursday’s meeting was at Werribee, not Geelong – but we had it right. The meeting originally slated for Werribee had been moved to Geelong.

But if you are investing your hard-earned on the meeting online, ‘Werribee’ is still listed on the TAB site.

The meeting was transferred on Wednesday because a Canberra-based official of the Department of Agriculture ruled racing could not proceed while Irish-trained sprinter Gordon Lord Byron was in quarantine at the course.

"Despite satisfying the requirements set out by the Victorian-based officials for the meeting to proceed, in the last 24 hours we have been advised by head office in Canberra that the meeting cannot proceed at Werribee, thus resulting in today's decision to transfer it to Geelong,” Racing Victoria Executive General Manager Greg Carpenter told racenet.com.au.

Geelong's track has a circumference of 2043 metres, with a 400 metre straight.

Werribee has a circumference of 1737 metres with a straight length of 275 metres.

A TAB spokesman said that once bets are entered into the system on a meeting, the venue name cannot be changed. The TAB commences taking bets on race meetings the morning before the event.

More than $10,000 was wagered on the Werribee meeting before it was announced on Wednesday afternoon that it was being shifted to Geelong.
