Burton Point-to-point horse racing in Lincoln cancelled
The Burton Point-to-point horse racing event in Lincoln has been cancelled as a result of recent weather.
Conditions at the Lincolnshire Showground have forced organisers to call-off the steeplechase event scheduled for January 27.
Organisers say the event will be re-arranged and the new date will be announced in the next week.
Local amateur jockeys and entrants from further afield were due to travel to the event at the Lincolnshire Showground to take on the mile-long course.

Riders complete three laps of the course with up to 18 horses lining up along side each other per race.
The event was first held on the course in 2009 and has since become a popular date in the point-to-point racing calendar, which features around 200 meetings in the UK between November and June.
