14 Additional Fixtures Added to UK Calendar


A winning post | BHA

There will be 14 additional fixtures added to the UK racing calendar following approval by the Board of the British Horseracing Authority. The proposal was submitted by the Racecourse Association (RCA) which has the full support of the Horsemen's Group (HB). The fixtures have been added to shore up racecourse finances, as well as generate a positive return for the Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB). The 14 fixtures are as follows:

Flat Fixtures:

  • 15/11/20 Southwell – Afternoon
  • 22/11/20 Wolverhampton – Afternoon
  • 23/11/20 Chelmsford City – Floodlit
  • 24/11/20 Lingfield Park – Afternoon
  • 30/11/20 Kempton Park – Afternoon
  • 01/12/20 Newcastle – Afternoon
  • 06/12/20 Southwell – Afternoon
  • 07/12/20 Chelmsford City – Afternoon
  • 08/12/20 Wolverhampton – Afternoon
  • 13/12/20 Lingfield Park – Afternoon
  • 14/12/20 Kempton Park – Floodlit
  • 15/12/20 Newcastle – Afternoon

Jump Fixtures:

  • 29/11/20 Ffos Las
  • 20/12/20 Bangor-on-Dee

“These additional fixtures will give some relief in the most challenging of times to the racecourses that are staging them and to the horsemen who have additional opportunities to race,” said RCA Chief Executive David Armstrong. “This is an excellent example of the industry working together for the common good and we are grateful to the Levy Board for its support.”
