Musselburgh Racecourse issued with temporary licence

07 Jul 2017

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today confirmed that Musselburgh Racecourse has been issued with a temporary licence until 31 December 2017.

This follows agreement from the Musselburgh Joint Racing Committee (MJRC) and East Lothian Council that an independent governance review should take place, with a nine-month timeline for completion and implementation of recommendations. Having had the opportunity to clarify some issues with the MJRC, the BHA is satisfied that its licence condition has now been met.

As a consequence, Musselburgh’s forthcoming fixtures on 14 and 25 July can go ahead.
