Racing at Fairyhouse cancelled because of waterlogging

WEDNESDAY evening's Flat meeting at Fairyhouse has been cancelled due to a waterlogged track.

Course officials made the call following a 3.30pm inspection on Tuesday.

The seven-card fixture was due to feature the Group Three Brownstown Stakes over seven furlongs.

Fairyhouse general manager Peter Roe said: "We're gone I'm afraid, it's absolutely saturated.

"We thought we might have a chance, but it just hasn't improved.

"We've had 173 millimetres of rain since June 1 - which is more than the whole of January, February and March put together."

The meeting has been rescheduled for next Tuesday.
