Horseracing in Britain is scheduled to return with an eight-race card on the all-weather at Newcastle on Monday June 1, according to the BHA’s initial schedule for the resumption of the sport, which was released on Thursday evening.
The schedule details all the races and meetings for the first eight days when the sport returns with the action continuing from Newcastle and Kempton on Tuesday. Kempton will also be racing on Wednesday, where it hosts the rearranged Classic Trial – which will become the first Group race since the shutdown of the sport.
The Coronation Cup, meanwhile, will be staged at Newmarket and headlines an action-packed Friday. The Brigadier Gerard, Paradise and Abernant Stakes support the Group 1 event, moved from Epsom. Lingfield hosts a stellar card on Friday as well, featuring their Oaks and Derby trials.
