Commenting on the final broadcast of British Racing from attheraces, BHB Chief Executive Greg Nichols said:
“attheraces has been of significant benefit to our sport, and has played an invaluable role in bringing British Racing to new and diverse audiences. It has captured all the characteristics of the sport, its passion, its drama and unique appeal expertly and the talented staff on-screen and behind the scenes of the channel have good reason to look back on their achievements with pride. They have provided an excellent service and a great deal of entertainment to hundreds of thousands of viewers.
“attheraces has contributed to record levels of both betting turnover and attendances on British racecourses and the current boom in the general popularity of racing, and for that reason it is unfortunate to see it go off the air. However, we anticipate that British Racing will be back on our screens in the form of a dedicated channel in the immediate future.”
