A series of these...

Quote
16:45 Newbury Racecourse to Reading due 17:02
16:45 Newbury Racecourse to Reading due 17:02 will be cancelled.
This is due to a problem currently under investigation.

Problem being investigated relates to how the horses got suspected horse flu ... which has resulted in the race meeting being called off

No, that would be canter-productive.  Tongue

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

An understandable reason for the cancellations. At least they weren't made on the hoof.

I can't think of a suitable comment, but since this thread has already been up for eight hours or so, it is rather 'after the horse has bolted'.

Indeed.  During our Coffee Shop forum planning meeting in Westbury today, grahame was determined to post this particular topic - he clearly had the bit between his teeth.  Grin
