    Yes it would. However what will they do with all the thousands if not millions of free bets that have been placed?

    They will be void if it is cancelled.

    Of course they're voided. Bets stand if the race is postponed to a later date.

    Sorry I think I am wrong...

    If a race is postponed but then takes place at the same track at a later date then all ante-post bets will stand. However, unless advertised differently ante-post bets will be declared void in the following circumstances:

    the race is abandoned and does not take place at a later date at the same track;
    the race is declared void;
    the race is moved to a different track;
    the selection is balloted out;
    the selection was ineligible for the race at the time the bet was struck. For example, if after all entry stages have been closed, a bet has been struck on a runner who is not in the list of entries then the bet will be considered void;
    it is not possible for the selection to win at the time the bet was struck, for example the horse is dead;
    the ante-post bet is offered "with a run" which is a specific ante-post bet where stakes are not lost on the non-running horse.

If so I can sympathise because I'm sitting on a healthy green book for the Gold Cup which would come to nothing. The main thing is the horses are treated quickly as otherwise this could be devastating to the industry.
    Yeah bets will be voided but my hotel and train tickets won't be

    It has happened back in 2001 with the foot & mouth outbreak. I was punting ante-post back then, albeit you could get proper prices. All of my ante-post book was voided and I ended up getting returns on horses I’d already written off through injury etc. Not sure whether the rules have changed since but as said, it would be a brave bookie to do anything else.

    Terrible this, hopes and prayers that all is sorted soon

    I know feels like Blue Thursday at the minute. Something happening on 31 March that might make rescheduling difficult too.

    With all the delayed runners due to the weather and now we see this which could be a fair few racing days cancelled, this could make this festival very interesting !

    Not that I’m a huge follower of trends but most have the potential to be ignored this year

    The worse thing for Antipost backers, is that only a few yards is affected so them yards will be quarantined, fingers crossed its none of the big boys or any yard for that matter..
