- Race will be re-opened
- Entries close at noon on Thursday, 3 November
Following the abandonment of racing following the third race on Monday, 31 October, the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has agreed to reschedule Kempton Park’s 32Red London Middle Distance Final Handicap Stakes to Wednesday, 9 November.
The race is the Final of the London Middle Distance Series, which has comprised 15 handicap qualifying races run over 1m around three furlongs at Kempton Park between March and October. Horses who took part in any of the qualifiers are eligible to take their place in the Final.
Original entries will not stand and the race will be re-opened, with entries closing at noon on Thursday, 3 November. Declarations will also follow the usual schedule and must be made by 10am on Monday, 7 November.
It should also be noted that, with the addition of this race, no race will be permitted to divide on the card.
Barney Clifford, London Head of Racing for Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
“This is a valuable race and one we are pleased to be able to re-schedule so quickly after the abandonment, and it is credit to the Horserace Betting Levy Board and investment from The Jockey Club that we are able to maintain the race’s original total prize fund of £55,000. Our thoughts continue to be with Freddy and we wish all the best to him and his family at this difficult time.”
Robin Mounsey, Media Manager for the BHA, said:
“It is pleasing to be able to reschedule what is a valuable race, both in terms of prize money and its importance to those who have qualified as part of the London Middle Distance Series. However, first and foremost our thoughts remain with Freddy Tylicki and his family and we wish him a speedy recovery from his injuries.”
