With the Big A having resurfaced/reconstructed the main oval, will they keep a new set of track records for that surface? Or will the current course records remain intact?

Obviously the newly installed turf course will establish two track records today.

I dunno, Tim. That turf course is not new since it was in use for many decades prior to being torn up back in the '70s.

According to Equibase, the Outer Turf is considered "new" so none of the old records from 1975 and earlier carried over.

I can understand that deal. Thank you, sir, for the update.
