Hereford Racecourse to reopen


Recommended Posts

From BBC Sports .


Hereford racecourse - controversially closed down by owners Arena Racing Company in December 2012 - is to reopen for business in October.


Up to four fixtures are to be staged with more in 2017.


Hereford was shut in 2012 after 241 years of racing - the first recorded meeting there was in August 1771.


However, ARC said at the time the venue was no longer viable, citing the recession and the rise of internet betting on other sports.
