Musselburgh Easter Sunday 2016 fixture deleted

12 Oct 2015 Racing/Fixtures

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has been informed by Musselburgh racecourse that the course will not be running the Flat fixture which had been programmed for Sunday 27 March 2016.

The racecourse informed the BHA that this decision was based on financial reasons following the loss of Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB) funding for the fixture. This came about when Musselburgh failed to access the HBLB bidding process for fixture funding which took place on Friday 25 September 2015.

No replacement fixture will be scheduled because this decision does not leave an HBLB ‘criteria’ gap as there are already three other fixtures scheduled for this day, two of which occupy the ‘criteria’ slots.
