Tony Kelly, Managing Director of Arena Racing Company said: “We have had a positive meeting with Herefordshire Council, who have offered to explore a longer term lease. We will work with the council throughout the remainder of 2012 and into next year to explore whether this is a viable option for the racecourse.”
