Britain will ease its attendance restrictions slightly beginning on July 28 to allow more owners to go racing.
Owners are currently limited to two per horse and they may only attend for their race. Exact numbers going forward will be determined by each racecourse depending on its capacity and limits on gatherings set by the UK and local governments. The restrictions on arrival and departure times will be removed, however owners are advised to arrive 45 minutes prior to their first declared runner to allow time for health screening. From July 28 racecourses will be permitted to offer hospitality for owners in line with the guidance for restaurants, pubs and bars.
The easing of attendance and time restrictions on course will not apply to Welsh racecourses at this stage, as Welsh government regulations allow for a maximum of 30 people in the 'owners' zone' at any one time.
