Raceday at Bratislava on September 19th cancelled


The raceday scheduled at Bratislava racecourse for September 19th has been cancelled because of an abrupt change in the rules for Czechs travelling to Slovakia. The new rules state that Czechs crossing the border into Slovakia must now present a negative covid-19 test certificate not more than 72 hours old. As many Czech-trained horses were entered for the races, and in particular because 60% of the already-declared riders were Czech-based, the organizers decided that the best option was to cancel the event.

The Bratislava racecourse website states that a replacement raceday with new race conditions will be held at the racecourse at the beginning of November.
