When conditions allow, more fixtures will be added and they also expect the Flat season to extend beyond the normal end date, and so the connections of such horses may want to take into account this when determining their plans.
In short, they have tried to strike a balance between minimizing avoidable risks and providing as many opportunities as possible for horses to run.
They have taken a similar risk mitigation approach involving jockeys, with analysis from the BHA health department, indicating that more experienced drivers are less likely to be injured. Therefore, only the more advanced jockey can ride according to the original plan. This will be reviewed continuously as the process resumes.
Finally, to further reduce the risk of participants being infected by the virus during the initial reconnection, no individual is allowed to attend more than one match per day.
Regarding where and how the car can restart, the email says: At this stage, they do not exclude any models to resume; All scenarios are under review.
According to the current plan, they anticipate that the early-stage models for resumption will allow horses to run behind closed doors under stringent conditions at locations that meet specific risk reduction criteria. Ro and infection control.
Once completed, these criteria will be used to determine which racetrack can in principle meet the safety requirements of racing behind closed doors in the most stringent resumption models.
Although the jump race will not take place before July 1, 2020, all Flat and jump racers will soon be invited to apply for server fixtures and demonstrate how they can meet the requirements. Events are specified in each model.
Racing Racing’s Resume Group will share with the racers the evaluation criteria and additional information about the submission process.
Dr. Jerry Hill, BHA’s medical advisor, who will play a key role in working with each racetrack, continues to work with medical advisors from other sports to coordinate planning. around resuming risks and reducing social risks.
