A new, safer running rail has been installed on the track of the Lockyer Race Club.
Saturday's Tradies Race Day was the first race meeting with the new upgraded plastic running rail, which replaced a steel version.
The plastic design means that if a horse and rider where to run into the rail, it would fall with the horse, a much safer alternative.
Racing Queensland funded the new $50,000 rail which was installed by Barriers International.
The Lockyer Race Club also thanked the Lockyer Valley Regional Council who assisted in the removal of the old rail.
