Boxing Day racing cancelled

Waterlogged track at Huntingdon

Boxing Day's meeting at Huntingdon race course has been abandoned because of a waterlogged track.

Officials made the decision after inspecting the course this morning. The Cambridgeshire venue is partly flooded following 16 millimetres of rainfall yesterday. More rain is also forecast.

General Manager Sophie Able said: “Even if the water started to recede rapidly – and that is highly unlikely because of the rain that we are forecast for Monday – there is no prospect that the track or its facilities can be returned to order in time for Boxing Day."
