Here at Newstart Racing we welcome the news that the government has given racing the all clear to resume at Newcastle on 1st June 2020!
We have been working with the horses throughout the suspension to best suit their needs, temperament and fitness, so we are able to return to racing with at least the same level of form (or better!), that we were starting to see at the beginning of the year.
We must appreciate we will now be working with a large amount of entries in a smaller choice of races for the immediate return of race planning. With this in mind for the short term there will be more opportunities for the higher rated horses in the yard who we can look forward to seeing at the track all being well, later this month.
Archive and Billy Dylan are likely to be our first runners to return to the track shortly followed by the others when opportunities become available. It’s nice to be able to look through the racing programme again picking out the races that will suit our team.
lthough at this early stage of the return there will only be a limited amount of staff permitted onto the racecourse, having carried out many different stages of protocol, all the races will be televised in the usual manner and so all of us will be able to watch, enjoy, record and replay all our races at any time!
I am relieved to be able to say I am not personally aware of anyone who has been affected with their health relating directly to Covid-19. I do believe even though we are pleased to work with ways and means of opening up sport, communities and everyday life with certain restrictions eased, it is as much now a time of importance that we all continue to stay safe and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
I send my sincere thanks to all our owners who have shown continued support throughout these difficult times. We will continue to work as hard as ever to give you all some brighter days to look forwards to in the coming weeks. Certainly looking forward to the season ahead
Take care of each other and keep safe!
Thank you, Suzzanne and the team.
