Racing: Stewards in cold sweat
Tuesday 22 February 1994
Cliff Griggs, the clerk of the course, said parts of the track were frozen and regretted that a forecast thaw failed to arrive in time. That left Wolverhampton's all-weather Flat card the only surviving fixture and it could be another blank day on the turf today.
Snow and frost caused Sedgefield's card to be called off yesterday - the 12th abandonment since the start of last week. Racing at Huntingdon is subject to a stewards' inspection at 7.15am today. Clerk of the course, Hugo Bevan, said: 'We could have raced today but the forecast is not good.'
At Doncaster, where racing is scheduled tomorrow, course official Charlie Moore warned: 'There has been frost overnight, and we have had both snow and rain today.'
