News in Brief

BHA keen to allow owners back on racecourses asap

The BHA on Sunday acknowledged the “huge contribution” made by owners to racing and to supporting the industry through the shutdown, and stated that efforts to get them back on to the racecourse are continuing. No owners will be permitted to attend racecourses until further notice with strict controls around the number of individuals permitted on race days. However, the BHA hopes to enable owners to see their horses running live as soon as circumstances allow.
