01 Aug 2018 BHA Features Racecourse

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today announced that due to the continuing spell of dry weather, Bath’s 8 and 18 August fixtures have been transferred as follows:

Wednesday 8 August (afternoon) – Chepstow
Saturday 18 August (evening) – Chepstow

Entry and declaration stages for both fixtures will be as normal with entries closing for Chepstow on 8 August tomorrow, Thursday 2 August at 12 noon.

Race programmes equivalent to those originally planned and further fixture information available via the racing admin site www2.racingadmin.co.uk.

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

“As the dry spell continues we have made this decision at an early stage in order to allow horsemen and racecourses to plan as best as possible.

“Despite the fact there was some rain in the area over the weekend, there is no expectation that Bath will be able to race on the coming dates.

“Our thanks go to ARC and the Levy Board for their assistance in facilitating the transfers.”
