Owners are compensated

Weatherbys HamiltonThe ROA’s Raceday Curtailment Scheme kicked in following the abandonment of racing at Windsor after the fourth race on Monday 15 May.

Most of the runners’ owners - 25 out of a possible 31 – qualify for a payment of £100 through the scheme, run in conjunction with Weatherbys Hamilton.

Payments will be automatically made to owners of qualifying horses.

Arena Racing Company said: “ARC and the team at Royal Windsor would like to apologise to everyone who was inconvenienced by yesterday’s events. After a review of the incident by ARC’s Racing Department a number of actions are being undertaken.

“In order to ensure the safety of all participants extra remedial work will take place on the bends. The team at Royal Windsor will remain in close contact with the BHA Course Inspector and the Horsemen’s Group and Ed Arkell, Regional Clerk for the South, will take clerking responsibility for the coming meetings.

“In addition, we wish to provide horsemen and racegoers who were effected with a token of appreciation for their support. The owners of the 32 horses due to run in the last three races which did not take place will each receive £300 from Royal Windsor to help cover their costs. The seven jockeys who attended the fixture but did not ride will receive £115.52, equating to one riding fee.

“All racegoers who attended will be able to apply for a complementary badge to come racing on Monday 22 May or Monday 12 June which is the Irish race evening, one of Royal Windsor’s premium fixtures. In order to obtain a new badge for one of these dates they need to retain their badge and call the office or email at”
