RACING CALENDAR UPDATE: JOCKEYS TAKE NOTE!
Following discussions with the BHA regarding the programming of 2 amateur races on 21 August, the following has been agreed:
- BATH 19 August 1m6f Class 6 Handicap will be for amateur jockeys
- WOLVERHAMPTON 21 August will now be for professional jockeys
Thanks to all working to make it work in these challenging times!
The latest revised list is here: https://www.amateurjockeys.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Races-AUGUST-2020-ReRevised.pdf
We are delighted to confirm that the BHA will be introducing amateur riders’ races into the Flat programme in August. Following the devastation caused to our racing programme by COVID-19, these August races will be open to both male and female riders.
Whilst some racecourses are currently unable to accommodate amateur races, it is hoped that this programme will remain unchanged but please be aware that in these extraordinary times it may be subject to change.
We would like to put on record our gratitude to BHA Race Planning and to all supporting racecourses for their tireless work and invaluable assistance which will enable the amateur season to start at last!
The full list of 9 races is now listed on this website at https://www.amateurjockeys.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Races-AUGUST-2020-revised.pdf
