Prior to the Cheltenham Festival 2019, Musselburgh has requested special permission to hold their Cheltenham Trials Day. It's the most significant NH race on the East Lothian track.

Because of the recent equine influenza episode as well as the bad climate, this gathering was postponed two times. It was already arranged on February 10th, with a record-breaking pot of more than £165,000 for a single day. Nevertheless, the fixture did not push through as a result of the British Horseracing Authority's plan to put the horse racing industry in a six-day break.

With the break now ended, everybody at Musselburgh is looking forward to stage the Cheltenham Racing Trials again after all of its after being postponed a number of times. Bill Farnsworth, boss of the racecourse, mentioned that the BHA had promised to help in this affair by offering additional opportunities in the future. However, at this point, they're simply giving a number of cards with additional races.

Besides that, Farnsworth announced that the BHA has approved to stage the fixtures on February 23rd as the runners that went through vaccination will be qualified to participate. In case their request for a substitute race can be staged on February 22nd, Musselburgh can perform at their best for the Cheltenham Festival Trials. Additionally, it is also a tremendous assistance for them because the north missed several races already.

Farnsworth said the Trial Races is an important part of preparing for the Cheltenham Festival 2019 per year where a huge number of individuals attend.
