Racing at Musselburgh

Musselburgh Racecourse hosts an extra jumps meeting on Friday to coincide with Cheltenham Gold Cup Day. Entry to the East Lothian course is free.

The extra fixture is a gesture to an embattled racing industry which has suffered a series of abandonments over the winter.

Bill Farnsworth, Musselburgh Racecourse’s chief executive, said: “We can provide good ground when other tracks are heavy and this extra meeting is aimed at giving hard pressed trainers and owners another opportunity to race.

“It will be free entry on the day and we will have the Cheltenham Gold Cup shown live on the big screens,”

Friday’s first race is at 11.30am with the last of seven races at 3.10pm but the racecourse will remain open until after the last race at Cheltenham (5.30pm).
