Statement Regarding Todays Abandonment


10 December 2022

The track at Newcastle had been prepared for today’s meeting in accordance with all standard operating procedures, with temperatures as experienced today and this week very much not out of the ordinary for fixtures during the winter.

 We will be undertaking a full investigation, alongside BHA, to consider what has taken place this morning. “Suffice to say, we are surprised and disappointed not to be racing at Newcastle this afternoon. 

We will, of course, be in touch with customers who had purchased tickets and hospitality to today’s fixture with details of refunds and exchanges. 

Equally, we will be in contact with those Owners and Trainers who had horses declared today with more information also. We would sincerely like to apologise for the significant inconvenience that this has caused to all involved.

Please note: all customers impacted will receive an email with more details about their booking.
