- BHA had hoped for resumption of racing this month
- Boris Johnson outlaws professional sport till June
Plans for the resumption of racing in Britain have been put back until 1 June in three weeks’ time, following a government announcement that there will be no professional sport in England, even behind closed doors, until at least the start of next month.
The British Horseracing Authority has been working on plans to stage meetings under strict quarantine conditions since mid-March, when all racing in Britain was suspended shortly after the Cheltenham Festival to combat the spread of coronavirus.
