While all pieces of metal are believed to have been removed, Racing Victoria opted to play it safe and cancelled the day’s racing.
“It could have been catastrophic, there’s no doubt about that,” Kilmore Race Club chief Ben Murphy told Melbourne radio's Tom Elliott."
It’s now in the hands of police.
