Additional All Weather fixtures at Wolverhampton on 29 July and Lingfield Park on 30 July

24 Jul 2018 BHA Features Racecourse Racing/Fixtures

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today announced that due to the continuing spell of dry weather, two additional afternoon fixtures, which will be 7 race cards, have been arranged as follows:

Wolverhampton (AWT) – Sunday 29 July
Lingfield Park (AWT) – Monday 30 July

Entries for Wolverhampton on Sunday 29 July close at 12 noon on Wednesday 25 July, with declarations on Friday 27 July.

Entries for Lingfield Park on Monday 30 July close at 12 noon on Wednesday 25 July with declarations on Saturday 28 July

The full race programme and further fixture information will be available via the racing admin site www2.racingadmin.co.uk in due course.

Paul Johnson, Head of Racing at the BHA, said:

“The extended dry spell has led to higher than usual demand for all-weather opportunities at this time of the year. With the fixture list for the coming fortnight featuring relatively few all-weather fixtures we felt that there was scope to add two fixtures to bridge the gap between now and early August when opportunities become more abundant.

“We are grateful to the Horserace Betting Levy Board and the racecourses involved for their efforts in facilitating this at short notice.”
