Racing: Abandonment disgusts Duffield

REDCAR's abandonment after just two races caused controversy yesterday. The card had been given the go-ahead only after passing an early morning inspection, but the stewards decided to call it off after senior jockeys Richard Hills, Kevin Darley and John Carroll had insisted the ground was dangerous.

But most jockeys and trainers criticised the decision. George Duffield said: 'I've known far worse. I came all the way here thinking I might ride a winner, Canzonet. It can't be too soft for him.'
