RACING continues behind closed doors despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson enforcing a new national lockdown.
As a top sport, racing can be operated with strict COVID-19 measures.
However, all betting shops across the UK are now forced to close and hopes of the crowds returning soon seem low.
Just today Cheltenham Racecourse admitted that they were expecting little to no audience at the festival in March.
Other top-class sports like the Premier League and Rugby’s Gallagher Premiership will also continue behind closed doors.
The news is another setback for the racing industry, but luckily the sport can continue to generate revenue from the levy.
The vital tax ensures that the prize money level can be sustained and that the tens of thousands who work in the industry continue to have jobs.
The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) confirmed: « After broadcasting that evening, we can confirm that the race will continue behind closed doors during the upcoming national suspension.
« Participation is limited to those required to hold fixtures and strict adherence to UK Racing’s COVID-19 protocols is required for all participants. «
Scottish Racing added: « Following today’s announcement, the Scottish Government has confirmed that the race can continue behind closed doors. «

« I know how difficult this is, and I know how frustrated you are, and I know you had more than enough government guidance on how to fight this virus, but now, more than ever, we need to pull ourselves together. «
