His second race - appearance cancelled

Forest General (Harry)’s appearance on Sunday 6th January 2019 at Larkhill racecourse is cancelled.
Trainer Sarah Gould, being ever vigilant, had suspicions about how hard the ground at Larkhill might be, knowing the course and given there has been little rain for a number of weeks.  She visited the course today, the day before the race, to see for herself and found in her view it was ‘hard’. despite the course steward in recent days pronouncing it to be ‘good’.  She recommended he didn’t run.
With Harry just starting out in his racing career. it is right to be cautious and not risk his legs on hard ground.  I know a few of you planned to come along and see him race.  It’s a pity we cannot, but he will now move forward to race another day.
