Following an inspection of Cheltenham Racecourse on the afternoon of Friday 15 November 2019, it has been confirmed that racing will go ahead on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November 2019. The going is currently soft, heavy in places and the third last hurdle and fence will be removed from the course to ensure the horses run on the best possible surface.
Cheltenham Racecourse has cancelled all racing on day one of The November Meeting, due to take place on Friday 15 November 2019, due to bad weather.
More than 37mm of rain has fallen on the course in the last 18 hours, meaning that Cheltenham Racecourse has been forced to abandon racing on Friday 15 November 2019.
In a statement on Cheltenham Racecourse’s Facebook page, The Jockey Club explained that the course was flooded in areas, as well as being waterlogged in others.
There will be another inspection at 3pm on Friday 15 November 2019 to determine whether racing can go ahead as planned on Saturday 16 November 2019.
Those who have pre-purchased admission tickets and car parking for Friday’s race day will be automatically refunded via their original payment method.
