Wetherby abandoned following freezing night
MONDAY'S meeting at Wetherby has been abandoned to compound the misery for the Yorkshire track which also lost its potentially money-spinning two-day Christmas fixture to snow.
Clerk of the course, Jonjo Sanderson, said following an inspection on Sunday morning: "We are frozen this time. We have had two nights of -3C, it was -4C last night, and it is not getting above freezing during the day, maybe scraping 1C.
"Tonight we are forecast -6C or -7C so there is no chance of the frost coming out of the ground before Monday's race meeting."
Monday's other jump fixture at Lingfield has also been abandoned, leaving the all-weather meeting at Wolverhampton as the sole meeting in Britain and Ireland on Monday.
