Horseracing Bettors Forum launch survey on fixtures

26 Feb 2020 BHA Features Financial/Political

The Horseracing Bettors Forum (HBF) has today launched  its 2020 survey to allow those who bet on horseracing both on and off course to voice their views on the current fixture list, as well as to comment on some ideas that have been suggested on how it can be improved.

Bettors will be asked about their views on the number and type of fixtures, lunchtime racing and the geographic spread of meetings.

Discussions on the 2021 fixture list are now taking place with many of racing’s stakeholders and this this survey will enable those who bet on the sport to have their voices heard.

Colin Hord, Chair of the HBF said:

“This short survey will allow those who bet and enjoy horseracing to contribute to the debate on the size of the fixture list. It will also survey some perennial questions including the need for days with no racing, the quantity of racing on Saturdays, and the type of racing that should feature on a card”.

The survey will run from 27th February until 31st March 2020.
