Horse racing live stream and TV coverage: How to watch Newcastle and Kempton races

Horse racing is back after the government granted permission for elite sport to resume in England. The British Horseracing Authority set out a comprehensive set of protocols to allow the sport to return behind closed doors following the coronavirus shutdown.

Racing will utilise a three-stage screening process in order to comply with the government guidelines.

Those at the course will undergo medical checks before departure and on arrival, with social distancing officials in place and no spectators in attendance.

“This is an important stage towards a complete return for our industry and will help protect livelihoods and businesses,” BHA Chief Executive Nick Rust said.

“The timing is crucial for the breeding sector and we thank the government and officials at DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport) and Public Health England for their assistance in planning a safe return to racing.
