Plumpton abandons Monday race meeting

Plumpton Racecourse has been forced to abandon its meeting scheduled for tomorrow

A statement released by the course today said: “Plumpton Racecourse has unfortunately had to abandon its race meeting on Monday 28th January due to waterlogging.”

Chief Executive Claire Sheppard said: “We are very disappointed that racing isn’t taking place. We have had 22mm of rain overnight; the course is waterlogged and there is not sufficient time to enable conditions to improve enough for us to be raceable for tomorrow’s racemeeting.”

Racegoers who had pre-purchased tickets online will get a full refund.

Plumpton’s next scheduled raceday is Monday 11th February – doors open 12 noon, with the first race at 1.50pm.
