The process for how trainers declare staff to attend the racecourse using Racing Admin will change on Sept. 18, the British Horseracing Authority announced on Monday. There will be a new Declare Staff section on Racing admin which will include the staffmember’s:
- Health status (green / amber / red)
- Questionnaire status for that fixture (sent / completed / not sent)
- Questionnaire Last Completed date (to help calculate a 7-day validity)
Also, the new area will give the ability to declare staff immediately after making a declaration to run, up until 1 p.m. on the day of declaration. The health screening questionnaires will be sent within 30 minutes of staff declarations (if less than 48 hours before the fixture.) There will be a live webinar at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 16 to explain the new features. For more information and to access the webinar info, please go to www.britishhorseracing.com.
