Sedgefield another victim of the rain

Tomorrow's meeting at Sedgefield has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

Clerk of the course Phil Tuck was forced to call an 8.30am inspection with areas of standing water on the track and more rain forecast today.

He said: "We have abandoned. It's still raining now and there are patches of standing water on the track."

Tomorrow's all-weather fixture at Southwell had already been abandoned due to rising flood waters. Officials had been due to inspect the racecourse today, but saw no reason to delay the inevitable. The circuit was also due to stage a fixture on Wednesday, but that too was also called off.
