Hastings cancels next Friday due to lack of entries


Due to a lack of entries Hastings has cancelled next Friday evening’s card. The only three races that could have been carded had six horses entered.

“We’re disappointed,” said racing director Paul Ryneveld. “We had some momentum with a solid purse increase and we have some big promotions coming up with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation. We have 904 horses that have recorded works at the track, so I am a bit surprised we didn’t get enough entries.”

Management at Hastings wasn’t sure if the lost day would be made up later in the year.
