Hereford racecourse is set to reopen its doors to jump racing in October.
The track, which was controversially closed nearly four years ago in December 2012, has continued to stage point-to-point and Arab racing.
However, much to delight of many in the racing world, jumping under rules will resume on October 6, with further meetings on October 31, November 23 and December 19.
"They will be four fixtures there this year, starting on the October 6th. Obviously, it's exciting news," said Susannah Gill, director of external affairs.
"Hereford stage proper grass-roots National Hunt racing."
Following news of the jumps track's reopening, trainer’s took to Twitter to show their delight.
Jonjo O'Neill tweeted: “Brilliant to see racing return to Hereford. Great news for all in the game.”
David Pipe echoed those sentiments when tweeting: “Fantastic news that @HerefordRaces is set to reopen. Great effort from Martin Cruddace and @arenaracingco - a job well done.”
David Dennis, one of the more local trainers, added on Twitter: “?Great news can't wait #onlyuptheroad.”
