Wolverhampton on but Dundalk fails inspection
EVENING racing in Britain and Ireland on Friday has been halved with Wolverhampton going ahead after an inspection but Dundalk being called off.
Wolverhampton had been in jeopardy due to heavy snowfall with snow settling on the track despite persistent harrowing of the surface.
An inspection was called for 5pm and with the snow easing the meeting was given the thumbs up. Seven races go ahead from 5.55pm.
The news from Dundalk was not as good though with the all-weather card abandoned due to high winds.
A tweet from Horse Racing Ireland said: "Dundalk cancelled tonight due to structural damage to the stands as a result of high winds which has made the site unsafe."
