19,322 racehorses in the UK requires a monumental effort from Racing Staff up and down the Country. Without their commitment and dedication, horses under their care face consequences which are too harrowing to imagine.
The BHA set strict guidelines for every yard to adhere by. Cleanliness, social distancing, and all other government advice is properly observed by Racing yards all over Britain in the attempt to preserve the sport we all love.
My point is, while working for the National Trainers Federation council, I have spoken to many trainers Nationwide, one thing that rings loud and true from these calls and witnessing it with my own staff first hand, is how much I appreciate and feel proud to br part of an industry that puts our equine participants front and centre.
Racing Staff dedication is incredible in the most trying of times. if we all pull together, do the right thing, we will all get through this.
