Larkhill Racecourse meeting on Sun 25 February went ahead with 87 horses facing the starter.  Since our last meeting rain fell most days and despite our best intentions, we were unable to roll the course or move the fences for fear of making matters worse.  It was the wettest it has been in memory.  We are aware that the going was in some areas a bit cut up and below our normal high standards.  However, the course was repeatedly inspected before the meeting and the going was officially judged to be good to soft and safe to run.  Testament to that was the safe return of all 87 horses and their jockeys. 

We now have just under a month before our next meeting and for that all the fences and bends will be moved onto fresh ground.  We look forward to welcoming you to Larkhill Racecourse for our final meeting of the season on Saturday 23 March.
