Horse racing to return on 8 June

  • Naas did stage a meeting before racing was suspended at the end of March

One suspects that will put the kibosh on too many British and French runners because trainers from those countries might regard sending a horse over for the Irish Guineas as too much faff, particular in the case of a jockey, although it is believed to be small print which HRI is discussing with its government.

He tweeted: "Horse Racing to return behind closed doors with strict protocols from June 8th". Everybody will be required to complete a baseline health screening questionnaire followed by a set of further screening questions every 24-hours before attendance at a race meeting. Racing had been successfully held behind closed doors in Ireland between March 13 and 24 until racing was suspended.

"We expect there to be significant demand for horses to run once we resume", Brian Kavanagh, the chief executive of Horse Racing Ireland, said, "and we will aim to provide some opportunities across the spectrum of age, gender and ability".

"With the confirmation on Friday of the resumption of racing on June 8, we are now publishing the fixture list and the associated details for the first three weeks of racing".

"We know from our own experience in March when we safely ran 10 meetings behind closed doors - and from what is happening in other countries like France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and America - that racing can be staged safely within the requirements of social distancing", Kavanagh said. Among the new rules will be the fact that only key personnel will be permitted to attend race meetings and that they will be subject to health screenings in advance and temperature checks on race day.

Kavanagh added, "I would like to acknowledge the constructive engagement with the government throughout the consultative process through the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed and his officials". The industry supports 29,000 jobs in rural Ireland, and we are the third-largest producer, and largest exporter, of Thoroughbreds in the world, all of which depends on racing taking place on track.

10 fixtures were held behind closed doors before racing was suspended at the end of March.

"These will not be race meetings as you might traditionally imagine them, rather stripped back events which will determine the best horses in various categories, a vital factor for the breeding industry".

Racing restarted behind closed doors on 7 May in Germany and on 11 May in France while the industry continued to run behind closed doors in Australia, Japan and Hong Kong.

Worldwide participation will be restricted to Group 1 and Group 2 races only for June, all of which must be in strict compliance with Government policy on the movement of people in and out of the country.

Social distancing will also be strictly enforced by a dedicated Covid-19 protocol officer at each fixture.

"The IGB notes the Government decision today to permit horse racing with effect from 8th June 2020 and would have been of the understanding that such decision also extended to greyhound racing".
