Great Yarmouth fixture on Friday 7 August transferred to Wolverhampton

04 Aug 2020 BHA Features Racecourse

The fixture scheduled to take place at Great Yarmouth on Friday 7 August will be transferred to Wolverhampton racecourse. 

This is as a precautionary measure whilst further assessment takes place to assess a portion of the racing surface in the home straight following a faller at the fixture on 3 August.

The fixture at Wolverhampton will be an evening eight-race card. The races will be as close as possible to those originally scheduled at Great Yarmouth.

Entries will close on Wednesday 5 August at 12 noon with 24-hour declarations on Thursday 6 August. Race conditions, times and further fixture information will be available via the Racing Admin site shortly.

ARC Racing Director, Jon Pullin, said:

““Following yesterday’s mid racing incident at Great Yarmouth, we have undertaken a thorough inspection of the whole track with senior racecourse officials and the BHA Inspectorate.

“Whilst nothing has come to light from this inspection, including any false ground, we will, in conjunction with BHA, move the fixture scheduled for Friday 7 August to Wolverhampton, before we resume racing at Great Yarmouth on Tuesday 25 August.”
