Reading between the lines, on the news today, the authorities are strongly suggesting that social distancing and mask wearing will continue throughout the summer.
How will this impact on racecourse bookmakers and the general public attending.
Any opinions?

we'll be lucky if it's only this summer, I fear we'll be into next year before anything resembling normal will be back !

Racecourses would appear from what we know to fall into that bracket Jimnast if they can survive on media rights money.  JCR seem to be adopting one enclosure policy now at the majority of their meetings,  ARC I saw somewhere if you don't pre-book you aren't getting in not sure if that was for all meetings...

Racecourses seem to be intending to make life as difficult as possible for people almost to the point they are discouraging them from wanting to attend in the first place, it was suggested to me that one track has no interest in opening to the public prior to August as they have plenty of other events on.   I guess with the goalposts moving all the time it must be difficult to plan and maybe they have just taken the decision that crowds just aren't worth the hassle for some time to come.

How has it ever got to this, and to top it all the Racegoers Club and RCA are pushing surveys asking Racegoers what they want to see prior to returning -  For things to return to the way they were seems too simple and not on anybody's agenda Jimnast
