Racing Swamped In Abu Dhabi

Tuesday, 15th December 2009

In a first for Abu Dhabi (which began racing in 1992) torrential rain forced the abandonment of Sunday’s race meeting. Abu Dhabi has the only all-turf racecourse in the United Arab Emirates. According to racingpost.com, clerk of the course Pat Buckley commented: "I have been in Abu Dhabi almost 20 years and I have never seen rain like it. The sand training track is flooded inside and the water in the car park is covering the wheels on my 4 x 4! It is a shame but nothing we can do about it and more rain is forecast."
