No racing at Towcester

HORSE RACING: Sunday’s Boxing Day meeting at Towcester racecourse has been called off due to a frozen track.

The decision was made as early as Tuesday by the course management, who felt there would be no improvement in the course conditions given the poor forecast.

General manager Kevin Ackerman said: “We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this causes but the weather has beaten us on this occasion.”
