The Armidale Cup has been postponed after 100mm of rain fell in Armidale over the past four days.
The decision to postpone Sunday's meeting was made after a track inspection on Saturday.
"We got the Racing NSW stewards up yesterday and they deemed it unsuitable for racing," Armidale secretary-manager Jim Dedes said.
"It's unfortunate for our Cup. We were expecting a good crowd and good fields.
"We were expecting a big day but that's the way it is. Horse and jockey welfare comes first."
Dedes said a new date hadn't been found for the Armidale Cup meeting but he hoped a decision could be made this week.
"We'll have to have a talk to Racing NSW and our committee through the week and make a decision," he said.
