Sedgefield Racecourse Statement


03 November 2022

Sedgefield Racecourse would like to offer our sincere condolences to the connections of Thermusa and Sweet Auburn, who separately suffered fatal injuries during a race this afternoon.

The welfare of participants, both human and equine, is paramount and the decision was taken to abandon the remaining two races and to undertake further inspection and investigation of the track.

The fixture scheduled for Thursday 10 November will not take place at Sedgefield, to allow further time to undertake this process with the British Horseracing Authority.

We will be in touch, in due course, with our customers and bookmakers who have attended this afternoon’s race meeting, along with the connections of horses that were scheduled to run in the last two races.
