How does BHA liaise with racecourses to produce a raceday programme?

04 Apr 14

The department identifies gaps and potential race clashes in the programme and analyses the success of, or demand for, certain types of races.  It then measures the performance of existing races in terms of the number of runners, entries and ratings for each type of race, to deem whether the race was a success.  All this has to take into account the budget available to the racecourse on any given day.
