British horse racing on course for June 1 return

Business News

British racing continues to plan for resumption on Monday 1 June, in line with the UK Government’s provisional timetable for the return of sport behind closed doors.

To support this plan, we are today outlining some of the preparatory steps that we will need to work on together between now and 1 June to ensure that we are all ready, should the UK Government’s provisional timeline be met.

By publishing these steps, we aim to provide greater certainty for the industry on the publication of key information for behind closed doors racing, including new and revised processes and protocols, together with actions that will need to be completed by industry participants prior to racing resuming.

This preparatory work will ensure that we can safeguard our people’s health and wellbeing, and return to racing in a safe and appropriate manner.

All relevant details and guidance will be communicated to the industry in good time, to ensure that participants, staff and officials understand the requirements and how these will apply before, during and after a race meeting.
