Ballarat Turf Club and other racing bodies will consider making changes to the Grand National Steeplechase program to improve safety for riders and horses.
The last two fences in the home straight were removed for the running of Grand National - the last race of the day - on Sunday after jockeys expressed concerns about the sun being in their eyes and making it difficult for them to judge the jumps.
With those jumps to have been negotiated twice, the steeplechase was reduced from 16 fences to 12.
Racing Victoria stewards reported that the matter will be referred to the industry's jumps review panel and Australian Jumping Racing Association.
With the jumps removed, the Grand National Steeplechase was run without incident, with Horsham galloper Inayforhay winning.
Winning jockey Lee Horner suggested in a post-race interview that starting the meeting 30 minutes earlier in the future might avert having to deal with sun issue again.
BTC chief executive officer Belinda Glass said there had been some preliminary discussions on the matter and there was plenty of time to deal with it.
She agreed that bringing the races forward - the Grand National was scheduled for 4.25pm - was one option along with a number of other ideas.
Glass said one might be expanding what was now a six-race jumps program to include highweight flat events late in the day.
The meeting concluded the Victorian jumps season.
MEANWHILE, trainers with Ballarat stables have dominated Ballarat race turf and synthetic meetings in the first month of the season.
The training centre's biggest stables of Ciaron Maher-David Eustace, and Tony and Calvin McEvoy head the way with nine apiece.
The McEvoys had four winners at a synthetic track meeting on Monday, August 16, while the Maher-Eustace team scored in five races at Sunday's all-jumps day.
