French Racing – Back On Track Soon

No visiting horses or jockeys will be allowed

French thoroughbred authority France Galop has released a statement suggesting that racing will return to the country from 11 May under strict protocols.

Although the races will be held behind closed doors, as largely expected, only the trainer, jockey and groom for each horse will be allowed on course.

The very tight restrictions are expected to be in place for quite some time, with France Galop’s statement saying they will be in place for as long as is necessary.

In addition, jockeys and horses from outside of the country are, at this stage, precluded from competing, albeit there is a chance that could start to change from the end of May.

With not all tracks equipped to cater for the types of restrictions in place, a new fixtures list will be published.
