In light of the Irish Government ban on UK travel, Horse Racing Ireland has announced that no Irish-trained horses or Irish jockeys should go to the UK to compete between now and December 31, the date the UK ban is due to expire.

Declarations for UK-trained horses to race in Ireland will not be accepted during that time.

Brian Kavanagh, Chief Executive of Horse Racing Ireland, said,

“The concern from Government is very clear: these are exceptional times and a travel ban with the UK is a once-in-a-generation occurrence.

“Irish racing has followed Government advice at all times during Covid-19 and will continue to do so. In that regard, we are advising that no Irish-trained horses or jockeys should travel to the UK for competition between now and December 31, and no UK horses or jockeys should travel in the opposite direction.”
