Ascot races called off

Racing and Wagering WA (RWWA) have abandoned Saturday's meeting at Ascot due to extreme heat.

Despite moving the meeting back to a twilight fixture earlier this week the forecast maximum for Ascot is 42 degrees and remains too high.

RWWA has proper heat management policies in place for the welfare of all participants.

Re-scheduling of races will be communicated later on Saturday.
