The going at Buckfastleigh remains SOFT

Saturday, 16 March at 21:44

Pony Racing 12 noon, 1st PtP Race 1.00pm.

Today’s very high winds, with occasional blustery showers, sure challenged our volunteers preparing for Sunday’s Buckfastleigh meeting. But it takes a lot to deter real “pointing” folk and although heavy rain was expected later in the day, with the prospect of a much improved forecast for Sunday they battled on with good humour, vowing to be up early Sunday to finish off the “cosmetics”, bins, banners and bogs, not forgetting the flags for the finish line!

As forecast, the wind and rain has already abated this evening (9pm), so rest assured we intend to be all ready to welcome you to our Course tomorrow, be it to race a pony or pointer, or just to enjoy the spectacle and a flutter, but tip for the day, do wear stout footwear – it is March after all!

I will post an up to date Buckfastleigh Going Report as soon as one is available to me tomorrow and I look forward to seeing you all there.

Thursday, 14 March at 21:54

Local BHA Course Inspector, Claire Wonnacott , walked the course with our Clerk of the Course, John Bond this afternoon and declared the Going at Buckfastleigh to be soft. Rain and strong winds are forecast for Saturday, quietening on Sunday to a moderate breeze.

Wadebridge is definitely on. It’s dried out nicely and the wind has dropped a lot. Going report to follow.

Preliminary going report from Nick Phillips: good to soft, soft in places. Wadebridge.

Saturday 8th December 2018 at 19:00

Report that the going at Wadebridge is good to soft, soft in places (4pm today). The course builders have been driving adjacent to the course all day with no problems. However, he is concerned that the sand has taken on a lot of water.

On Nick’s suggestion I have also spoken to the Course Inspector, Tim Dennis, and he has said that a decision cannot be made until he inspects the course tomorrow at 10am. with the Chairman of Stewards.

We will try and improve the drainage of the sand area in the morning, and put up the wings as it was too windy today. I’m sorry that we can’t be more specific at this stage but time and time again at Wadebridge we have been able to race against all odds.

I realise that some of you are travelling long distances and you need an answer but we really can’t make a decision tonight. The forecast is better in the morning all round.

21:30

The secretary has been informed that the inspection at Wadebridge tomorrow morning is just a general inspection which happens before every meeting. The Course Inspector is fairly confident that we can race as usual. We’ve had a lot of rain today but it should clear overnight.

Friday 7th December 2018 at 16:00
