The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today announced that the two races over 7 furlongs due to be run at Salisbury’s next fixture on Thursday 17 May have been abandoned.
This is due to the seven furlong start at Salisbury remaining unraceable.
Two replacement races at other distances will be programmed in their place, along with another race making a seven race card.
Details of the three races are now available via www2.racingadmin.co.uk, with entries closing for the fixture will close as before at 12 noon on Friday 11 May.
Jeremy Martin, Clerk of the Course at Salisbury Racecourse, said:
“The ground in front of the 7f start is recovering well with the two bare patches that had been waterlogged
now improving and starting to grow over, however it will not be raceable for 17 May.
“It is anticipated that the start will be used at the fixture on Tuesday 12 June, which is when the 7f start is next scheduled to be in use.”
