Windsor fixture on Monday 12 July abandoned, Lingfield Park AW fixture added

06 Jul 2021 BHA Features Racecourse Racing/Fixtures

Following recent heavy rain, the Windsor Racecourse Executive, in conjunction with the BHA’s Racecourse Inspectorate, has abandoned its next fixture on Monday 12 July. In response, the BHA has programmed an additional fixture on the all-weather surface at Lingfield Park on the same day. The day’s race programme will, as far as possible, resemble the original races, with necessary changes to distances and safety factors

Races will close at noon on Wednesday 7 July, with declarations at the 48-hour stage as normal. Race conditions will be available in due course.

Sophie Candy, Clerk of the Course at Windsor Racecourse said: “Following racing on Monday evening on soft, heavy in places we have had another 21mm rain overnight at Windsor and the track is now unraceable. Having raced recently on a combination of soft to heavy ground, current conditions, and the forecast for the week ahead, the decision has been made to move next week’s fixture to allow the track further recovery time. We would like to thank BHA and the NTF for their support in facilitating this move which has been done in the interests of all participants.”
