Plumpton Racecourse has been forced to abandon its scheduled race meeting today (Monday, February 11).

Heavy rain over the past 24 hours has caused the course to become waterlogged.

Chief Executive Claire Sheppard said: “We are very disappointed that racing isn’t taking place. We have had 33mm of rain in the last 24 hours, significantly more than was forecast, and the course is waterlogged.”

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

Plumpton’s next scheduled raceday is Monday February 25 – doors open 12 noon, with the first race at 2.10pm
