Statement regarding Bloodstock Review articles in the Racing Post

15 Aug 2019 BHA Features Integrity

Statement regarding Bloodstock Review articles that were published in the Racing Post.

We are very disappointed that a version of the draft report has been leaked. We are working to identify the source of this unhelpful leak.

We will not comment on a leaked document that is not yet finalised. The review has been written up on the basis that it will be published following discussions with the industry. The BHA will publicly respond at that point.

The BHA is working with the industry’s stakeholders and last Thursday held a productive meeting with sales houses Goffs and Tattersalls, the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association, the Racehorse Owners Association, the Federation Of Bloodstock Agents and the National Trainers Federation.

Our objectives are to retain and grow racehorse ownership and to support an important part of our industry with whom we worked previously to create the current Code of Practice.
