Racing ABANDONED 25th October


21 October 2023

Worcester has abandoned racing on Wednesday due to flooding on the site as a result of Storm Babet.

We will have to wait until the water levels drop again to ascertain the full extent of any damage to the track and other facilities, and will offer a further update in due course.

Customers with tickets for Wednesday be contacted shortly with more information regarding their booking

Mark Spincer said, "Storm Babet has had a significant impact on our business, specifically at Worcester and Southwell, which are both currently under water.

We are not unused to flooding from the River Severn at Worcester, but will wait to judge the impact on the ongoing build of the new weighing room.

At Southwell, we will equally have to wait for the water levels to drop significantly before we can ascertain the full impact on both the tapeta and turf tracks.

We have abandoned both Monday's meeting at Southwell and Worcester's Wednesday card and will offer further updates in due course."
