Taunton meet snowed off

Saturday's meeting at Taunton has been abandoned due to snow.

Clerk of course Michael Trickey reports conditions to be bleak in Somerset and admits there is no chance of their classy fixture going ahead.

He said: "We have had about three inches of snow and it is still snowing now.

"I couldn't actually get to the track as I live 40 miles away, but we've had to abandon.

"It would be foolhardy to continue as temperatures are unlikely to get above 1C today, so we would be snowbound and if it did thaw, we would then be waterlogged as the ground is heavy and can't take any more."
