Horse racing at Uttoxeter called off because of snow

TOMORROW’S (Tuesday) race meeting at Uttoxeter has been called off because of the bad weather.

Clerk of the course Charlie Moore took the decision to abandon the meeting following an 8am inspection of the course today.

The wintry weekend has left the track covered by three inches of snow and the situation is not expected to improve by race day.

With overnight temperatures forecast to plunge to -10C overnight, Moore said there was “no chance of any recovery.”

The next scheduled fixture at Uttoxeter is the Christmas Party Raceday on Friday, December 22.
