BHA announces six new twilight meetings
THE BHA on Monday announced details of an additional six twilight fixtures to be held on Tuesdays at Kempton and Wolverhampton from the end of September to early November.
Due to sunset times, only floodlit tracks were invited to apply to stage the fixtures, which the BHA claims "should deliver competitive field sizes".
The Levy Board will contribute £2,500 per race in addition to the prize-money contributed by each racecourse.
The programme at all fixtures will be constructed by the BHA racing department and will consist of six races commencing approximately 10 minutes after the last afternoon race.
The opening race at the first meeting, Wolverhampton on September 30, is scheduled to start at 5.50pm.
Details of the race programmes will be published in due course.
