Fairyhouse cancelled following morning check

Saturday’s meeting at Fairyhouse has been called off due an unraceable track.

An first inspection ahead of the card, which was set to feature the Grade Three Race Displays Mares Novice Hurdle, was carried out at 3pm on Friday, with officials deciding to take another look at 7.30am on Saturday due to the forecast.

An Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board statement said: “Following an inspection this morning at Fairyhouse, parts of the track were found to be unfit for racing after 12mm of rain overnight and the meeting scheduled to take place today (Saturday) has been cancelled.”

The Fairyhouse meeting will now take place on Monday, February 8 with fresh entries closing at noon on Wednesday.

Sunday’s meeting at Naas will have to pass a morning check if it is to go ahead. Officials initially inspected on Saturday afternoon, with the track raceable at present.

The IHRB tweeted: “Following a track inspection this afternoon, the track at remains heavy and fit for racing.

“After consultation with @MetEirean, there will be a further inspection at 7.30am tomorrow morning due to the threat of further rain.”
