THURSDAY night’s washed out Queensland Derby and Futurity heats at Albion Park will now be run on December 16.

Albion Park was saturated on Thursday night when a thunderstorm forced races three to 12 to be abandoned.

Among those races were the Group 2 Derby and Futurity heats (520m).

Racing Queensland (RQ) has decided to call for fresh nominations for both the Derby and Futurity and trainers must re-nominate for the series.

But, those greyhounds engaged in the heats on December 9 will be given preference.

Also programmed for December 16 are the heats of the Middle Distance Challenge (Open 600m).

Due to the rescheduling of the Derby and Futurity heats, the heats of the 5th Grade Christmas Stocking (520m) will be transferred to December 23 with the final on December 30.
