Kempton Park, home of the classic King George VI Chase, could be closed for housing redevelopment "from 2021 at the earliest", its owners the Jockey Club announced today.

The planned £500million of investments to be made in the sport in a 10-year plan proposed by the Jockey Club would see Kempton proposed as a future redevelopment site, with a new all-weather venue to be built if that idea goes ahead.

The Jockey Club's land at The Links in Newmarket is favoured as the location for a new artificial track, with the King George moving to Sandown.

Pit crew member Todd Phillips escaped with six stitches in his leg after being run over by Francesco Dracone’s car during an IndyCar race on Sunday.

The accident took place during the inaugural IndyCar Grand Prix in Louisiana, when Dracone's car spun out of control and his back tyre flipped Phillips into the air.

Dale Coyle racing tyre changer, Phillips, posted on Facebook following the accident:

"I guess the cat is out of the bag. I can't tell you how lucky I am to walk away with only 6 stitches!"
