Hereford: Closed for thoroughbred racing in 2012
Hereford racecourse will be back in action this year with five Arabian racing fixtures due to be held at the track.
The venue closed for thoroughbred racing at the end of 2012 but Hereford's operators Arena Racing Company (ARC) have agreed to stage the meetings on the first Sunday of the month from May until August.
The fifth fixture will be the Arabian Racing Season Finale which will take place on September 28.
Jim Allen, ARC's racing director said: "We are delighted to have been able to find a way for the facilities at Hereford to be used while we continue to develop our longer term strategy for the venue."
ARC lease the track from Herefordshire County Council but decided last year it was no longer viable to race there, with the track closing its doors last December.
