Racing industry leaders from the BHA, horsemen and racecourses have agreed on the next phase of the response to the COVID crisis. A wide range of work has been continuing since racing was the first major sport to resume on 1st June. But the plan published today puts an added focus on retaining owners and key investors and attracting customers when the public starts to return to racecourses.
With what is proving to be quite a testing and tricky time for us all, we want to shake away the doom and gloom with some exciting racing trips and packages to look forward to come 2021 when things return back to normal…
Let’s start from the beginning
We are a National Hunt Racecourse staging jumps racing from September through until May in the beautiful Borders countryside and picturesque town of Kelso.
The stiff undulating track provides a firm but fair test. While catering for all horses, the race programme is deliberately skewed towards the quality end of the spectrum with many trainers using the track’s Spring fixtures as a stepping stone to the festivals at Cheltenham and Aintree.
