“this is an important stage towards a complete return for our industry and will help protect livelihoods and businesses,” said british horseracing authority chief executive nick rust. “the timing is crucial for the breeding sector and we thank the government and officials at the department for culture, media and sport, and public health england, for their assistance in planning a safe return to racing. there is still a tough battle ahead before we can get fully back in business, but this is a resilient and world-leading industry and we are ready for the task.
“our plans for returning safely have been developed with the assistance of all the representative bodies in our sport and i believe the public can be reassured by the measures we will have in place. people understand how important it is for industries like ours to get back to work. our participants know what will be asked of them when they attend a raceday. together, we’ll stick to social distancing rules and prevent the virus spreading.”
he added: “i’m sure the return of racing will be welcomed by all those who have missed the excitement of live sport and the majestic sight of racehorses running at full gallop. we hope it will lift the nation’s spirits in difficult times and look forward to seeing our owners and racing fans back at racecourses as soon as that’s possible.”
