The 2024 Peter O'Sullevan Lambourn Open Day–due to be staged on Good Friday, March 29–has been cancelled, it was announced on Monday.

For over 30 years the annual charity event has offered a look behind the scenes of the racing industry, with various training yards and attractions opening their doors to the public. However, following an exceptionally wet spring, the decision has been made to cancel the hugely popular event in 2024 due to either flooded or unusable car parks.

The Peter O'Sullevan Lambourn Open Day's chairman, Mark Smyly, said, “It's a huge shame that this year's event cannot take place. An enormous amount of work has already been put into the planned event by the committee, along with the valued support and help of all the trainers.

“The Lambourn Open Day is put on each year solely to raise money for the welfare of all the Lambourn Valley's hard-working stable staff and their families. If you could please support the Silent Auction, and perhaps generously make a donation, you will be helping them enormously.”

Smyly added, “A full refund of all purchased tickets will be made. There is no need to apply. The refunds will take a while to sort out and your patience is appreciated. The Silent Auction will go ahead as usual. It has some exciting and unique items ranging from mornings on the gallops to hospitality and lunches at some of the top racecourses around the country.”

Full details are available on the Lambourn Open Day website.
