What is the role of the Stewards on a raceday?

18 Apr 19

The Stewards role is to ensure that the BHA Rules and Instructions are adhered to. They watch each race live or on screens in the Stewards’ room, then afterwards review the action from all the various camera angles. In particular they are looking for breaches of the Rules on interference, the whip, and horses not being run on their merits. The Stewards also decide which horses should be tested for banned substances.
