Equine flu: British horse racing to resume after shutdown over virus

Horse racing in Britain will resume on Wednesday after a six-day shutdown following an outbreak of equine flu.

Two scheduled jump racing fixtures will go ahead at Musselburgh and Plumpton, alongside the all-weather fixtures at Southwell and Kempton.

Racing was suspended after three cases of equine flu at Donald McCain’s Cheshire stables. Three further cases were later reported at his yard.

A total of 174 racing stables had been placed in lockdown.

More to follow.
