18 Dec 2017 BHA Features Racecourse

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today announced that Ayr Racecourse will host an additional Jump fixture on Friday, 22 December 2017.

Entries will close tomorrow, Tuesday 19 December at 12 noon, with declarations at the 24 hour stage as normal on Thursday 21 December 2017.

The full race programme can be seen below, and further fixture information and race conditions are available via the racing admin site www2.racingadmin.co.uk.

Nick Dartnall, Race Planning Executive at the BHA, said:

“We have lost a substantial number of Jump fixtures in the north in recent weeks and following requests from northern trainers and discussions with northern racecourses, felt that we should support the region if at all possible by providing an additional opportunity.

“It is quite unusual for us to stage an additional fixture on a day where we already expect to fulfil the betting criteria but in the circumstances we felt it was the right decision so will now stage four fixtures this Friday.

“Our thanks go to Ayr and the HBLB for their assistance in staging this fixture.”
