ALBURY Racing Club will host an additional non-TAB meeting on Saturday.
Racing NSW scheduled the extra meeting to provide racing participants another opportunity to earn an income amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The club received 84 nominations for the six-race card.
Only industry participants will be able to attend.

ARC chief executive officer Steve Hetherton said the club jumped at the opportunity to help out the industry with another rmeeting.
"It's a non-TAB meeting so there is no turnover," Hetherton said.
"But it gives those participants who own and race horses who are perhaps not up to the class of TAB meetings a chance to win some prizemoney.
"Racing NSW asked the club if it was something it would be interested in doing and we are only too happy to oblige."
Racing is one of the few sports still going ahead with most others in Australia and worldwide in lockdown.
