The British Horseracing Authority has asked Ayr racecourse to report on the circumstances surrounding the abandonment of the track’s three-day Western meeting, due to a small area of waterlogged turf on an otherwise raceable track. The final card of the meeting, including the £200,000 Ayr Gold Cup, was abandoned on Friday morning, just 24 hours after news of the potential problem emerged.
Eleven runners are due to to post for the Listed John Musker Fillies’ Stakes this afternoon, the feature event on the second day of Yarmouth’s valuable September meeting, and while several have already got form in the book at this level and above, the still-improving handicapper Titi Makfi (3.50) could well have the beating of them. Mark Johnston’s filly did not start out on her three-year-old season until June, when she won a 0-70 handicap at Hamilton off 70 by four lengths.
A father and son who injected what they hoped would be performance-enhancing drugs into their runner before the Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham on Gold Cup day in March were banned from racing for three years at a British Horseracing Authority disciplinary hearing in London.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
