Towcester’s 3 January fixture cancelled

06 Dec 2018 BHA Features Racing/Fixtures

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today announced that Towcester’s fixture on 3 January has been cancelled. 

The background to this cancellation is that this fixture was leased from the BHA on a one year basis and, within the terms of the lease, in circumstances where it is not possible for the racecourse to stage the fixture, it is handed back to the BHA to be re-offered to alternative racecourses. Having gone through the process of re-offering the fixture there were no applications.

This is the only fixture of this type that was due to be staged at Towcester in 2019 and the BHA will continue to work with Towcester’s owners regarding the racecourse’s upcoming fixtures and the longer-term status of the course.
