The British Horseracing Authority has today announced that due to the spate of recent abandoned fixtures, Chelmsford City will host an additional all weather fixture this Sunday, 17 December 2017.
Entries will close tomorrow, Thursday 14 December at 12 noon, with declarations at the 48 hour stage as normal on Friday 15 December.
Mike Waring, Senior Race Planning Executive at the British Horseracing Authority, said: “Given that the recent cold snap has led to a number of abandoned fixtures, we offered racecourses the opportunity to stage an additional fixture which will hopefully benefit owners, participants, punters and the horse population. We would like to thank Chelmsford City Racecourse for agreeing to hold the fixture and the Horserace Betting Levy Board for their continued support.”
Fraser Garrity, Racing Manager of Chelmsford City Racecourse, said: “We are delighted at being able to help keep the show on the road during this period of poor weather and are looking forward to a competitive seven race card on Sunday”.
