The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today announced that the BHA Board has granted Musselburgh Racecourse a temporary licence, which will expire on 16 October.
This follows the expiration of the racecourse’s previous temporary licence on Saturday 5 May.
The BHA Board remains of the view that it is in the interests of the racecourse and the wider sport for a temporary licence to be issued for this period.
The temporary licence means that racecourse’s fixtures during the remainder of the 2018 Flat season can go ahead as scheduled.
An update regarding the state of Musselburgh’s racecourse licence beyond 16 October will be provided nearer the time.
