The Jockey Club's Racing Committee yesterday sanctioned an October 16 meeting to replace the fixture lost to the weather on Wednesday night, but the change has yet to go before the government. 'We now have to contact the government to have the new meeting authorised, but we are aiming to run a meeting at Happy Valley on that vacant date,' Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges, the Club's director of racing, said yesterday. Wednesday's meeting was cancelled following the raising of typhoon signal No 8, but Engelbrecht-Bresges said that loss of the racing was virtually the only damage inflicted by the typhoon on either the Happy Valley and Sha Tin racecourses. 'I think the total damage from the storm was a broken window,' he said. 'The horses which stayed at Happy Valley overnight were all returned to their Sha Tin stables this morning without any problems.'
