HORSE TRACK: In London, Will Hayler reported that Leicester racecourse's recent run of "rain-related misfortune" shows no sign of coming to an end. No racing has taken place at the track since the start of last month and with Wednesday's fixture now gone, Manager David Maykels admitted that the "recent abandonments were beginning to become depressing, not to mention an unwelcome financial burden." Maykels said, "We had 32 meetings in the book for this year and in a normal year we'd expect to lose three or four, but we've already had eight abandoned" (GUARDIAN, 7/17).
