The new 1600m crossing at Ascot will open on August 13 (Wednesday) to allow curbing and the Pro Ride surface to be installed as well as turfing of the grass track at the 1800m old crossing.

There will still be temporary fencing in place but everyone should follow the Track Marshall’s directions to ensure safe use of this facility until everyone becomes familiar with the process and the proper railing is in place.
