THE return of flat turf racing is just around the corner as the season gets underway at Doncaster Racecourse, this Saturday with the Unibet Lincoln weekend.
The first fixture at Brighton Racecourse takes place behind closed doors on Saturday April 17. Tune in on Sky Sports Racing to watch all the action live.
Birghton is also very pleased to be able to welcome back spectators to experience the thrill of hooves thundering along the turf.
A spokesperson said : “We now have tickets on sale for all of our fixtures taking place between May 17- September 30. Tickets have been very popular, be sure to get yours before they’re all gone.”
A statement from the Jockey Club said: “On February 22nd 2021 the Government announced plans to help the country out of its National Lockdown. As part of these plans racing fixtures staged from May 17 2021 will be able to welcome up to 4,000 spectators, if the Government’s tests are met for moving into Phase 3 of lifting lockdown restrictions.”
Similarly, if the Government’s tests and criteria are met, then indoor conferences and events of up to 1,000 people will also be possible from May 17. The Government will provide further guidance nearer the time.
The Government also announced that events staged from June 21 2021 will be able to operate at pre-pandemic capacities, if the Government’s tests are met for moving into Phase 4 of lifting lockdown restrictions.
