The start time for Friday's Rockhampton meeting has been pushed back as many southern-based jockeys are experiencing flight delays out of Brisbane.

Two outbound flights from Brisbane are due to be transporting jockeys but conditions in Rockhampton are causing delays.

The first race was originally scheduled for 12:02pm but is now due to jump at 12:37pm. All races have been pushed back one race time and the last is now scheduled for 4:52pm.
