Catterick abandons Thursday meeting
THURSDAY'S meeting at Catterick has been abandoned due to a frozen track.
A 3.30pm inspection showed the course was still unraceable despite a slow thaw on Wednesday that raised hopes of beating the cold snap.
"We did get up to three degrees but unfortunately it just hasn't come out quickly enough," said clerk of the course Fiona Needham.
"The latest forecast I have for tonight says the temperature could get down to minus one. That decided it for us.
"It hasn't got warm enough quickly enough and the course is still frozen in places."
