My thanks to Steven Rafferty of Musselburgh Racecourse for providing the following message.
The East Lothian track has secured an additional National Hunt meeting on Friday 20 February, gates open at noon and first race is 2pm.
And in a further boost for disappointed punters Musselburgh have slashed admission prices for this race meeting with race goers paying £10 at the gate (normally £15) and concessions priced at £5 (£10).
Musselburgh Racecourse general manager, Bill Farnsworth, said: “We’ve lost two meetings due to bad weather since the start of the year but we are determined to pull out the stops and do what we can with extra fixtures and discounted pricing wherever possible.
