Scottish Racing in talks about 22 June behind-closed-doors resumption


Spectators will not be allowed when racing resumes

Scottish Racing is in talks with the Scottish government about resuming the sport behind closed doors on 22 June.

Racing in Britain has been suspended since 17 March but fixtures are scheduled to resume on Monday.

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has allocated 24 meetings to Scottish courses across June, July and August pending approval.

The first in the diary is a meeting at Ayr on 22 June, followed by two at Hamilton on 24 and 28 June.

Musselburgh’s first races since February are pencilled in for 30 June and 1 July, with action returning to Perth on 21 July.

“The public can have confidence in our ability to race behind closed doors as safely as possible when the government allows more industries back to work,” said Delly Innes of Scottish Racing.

“As a highly regulated industry we have considerable experience of keeping any potential health and safety risks to an absolute minimum.

“We are fully prepared to stage race meetings in a strictly controlled environment once they decide the time is right to resume racing.”
