1 Scotland's New Year Sprint - Handicaps on Mon Nov 20, 2017 9:37 am


Handicaps have been released for the New Year Sprint to be held over 30th Dec & 1st Jan. Backmarker is Scottish Under 20's 100m champion Michael Olsen. The 18-year-old has a PB of 10.45sec recorded in August. He ran a wind assisted 10.43 (W +3.0) to win the Scottish u/20 title.

From the New Year Sprint website -

The 149th New Year Sprint is due to be held on Saturday 30th December 2017 and Monday 1st January 2018. The first day's events will be held on the synthetic polymeric track at the East Lothian Athletics Arena, Meadowmill Sports Centre in Prestonpans, 9 miles east of Edinburgh. The second day's events will be held at the traditional venue of Musselburgh Racecourse, 6 miles east of Edinburgh, where the running will take place on the outer horse racing circuit used for flat racing, in front of the Queen's Stand.

The heats of the New Year Sprint, and all rounds of the supporting events, will be held on the Saturday. The Sprint semi-finals and final on the Monday will be incorporated into the traditional New Year National Hunt horse-racing meeting. The Sprint final is due to be televised as part of ITV Racing's coverage of the day's events.

The first prize of £4000 makes the Sprint by far the richest race in the professional calendar, reinforcing the event's position as the sport's premier event.
