Musselburgh Race Meeting Abandoned Due to Frost

Musselburgh Racecourse has abandonded today’s (Sun Dec 16) race meeting because of severe overnight frost.

With -5 frost overnight and daytime temperatures forecast to rise to only +2 by mid-day, the decision was taken to cancel the meeting due to health and safety factors.

Musselburgh Racecourse management are asking racing fans not to start their journey to the East Lothian track.

Clerk of the course Anthea Morshead held a 6.30am inspection and had to call the meeting off with no sign of imminent improvement.
