Waterlogging claims Plumpton
Racing at Plumpton on Monday afternoon has been abandoned after heavy overnight rain left the track waterlogged.
An inspection was called on Sunday afternoon for 8am on raceday, but further significant rain overnight led to a decision to abandon being made earlier.
Clerk of the course Mark Cornford said: "When I got here we'd had 33 millimetres of rain from 8am on Sunday until 5.40am this morning.
"It's eased off a bit but we could possibly get another three millimetres this morning before clearing by midday - but that's too late for us.
"There's water lying all round the bottom bend and in other isolated areas."
