BHA adds six Flat fixtures to racing calendar

Six Flat fixtures have been added to the calendar in the coming weeks to compensate for meetings that have been lost since the death of the Queen.

Racing was cancelled on Friday and Saturday last week as a mark of respect following the death of the Queen and the sport will again come to a halt on Monday as Her Majesty's state funeral takes place.

The British Horseracing Authority has announced the addition of six meetings after reviewing the lost contests and consulting with trainers.

Southwell will now stage additional fixtures on September 21 and October 9, with Chelmsford (September 22), Yarmouth (September 25), Newcastle (September 28) and Wolverhampton (September 29) also hosting substitute cards.
