Sadly the race meeting at Musselburgh on Sunday 10 February 2019 has had to be cancelled in the same way as all other horse racing across the UK owing to an outbreak of equine flu.

Musselburgh Racecourse general manager, Bill Farnsworth, said: “We are naturally disappointed at losing our richest jumps racing fixture this weekend but the racing community is working together to minimise the spread of equine influenza and the decision by the BHA to cancel racing is without doubt the correct one.

“The industry does prepare for scenarios such as these and I am confident that the stringent procedures which are in place across the UK will ensure that racing is back and up running as soon as it is safe to do so.

“A decision will be taken on Monday by the BHA as to when racing will resume, and if our next meeting scheduled for Wednesday 13 February goes ahead as planned, there will be free admission for all.”
