MUSSELBURGH Racecourse is back open tomorrow and offering free entry to all.

The racecourse, along with Plumpton, Kempton and Southwell, had been closed by the British Horseracing Authority due to an outbreak of equine flu.

Bill Farnsworth, Musselburgh Racecourse general manager, said: “Due to weather-related issues and the flu situation we have not raced for more than a month, so we are glad to get back to business.

"Free entry for all will be a welcome incentive to our regular racegoers and we appreciate their support and that of the owners and trainers over this period.”

Gates will open at noon for the 2.30pm Betway Mares’ Maiden Hurdle, the first of the six races that are taking place.
