Protecting business from equine flu

The British Horse Racing Authority has called off all racing fixtures until next week, at the earliest, due to the recent outbreak of equine flu in vaccinated horses 영화 간첩 다운로드. The biggest national hunt meet, pre-Cheltenham, at Musselburgh, which was due to take place on Sunday, has been cancelled, and there is talk that Cheltenham Races and even potentially the Grand National could be affected 파로스 다운로드. This is not necessarily due to expectations that fixtures will still be under enforced cancellation, but concern that, due to this lockdown, not enough horses may be sufficiently fit or ready to race 다운로드.

Duncan Sutcliffe, director, Sutcliffe & Co, commented: “The British Horse Racing Authority is right to do what it can to protect the welfare of horses and protect the racing industry in the long run 컬투쇼 사연모음 다운로드. However, cancelling fixtures will have a huge short-term impact on racecourses, caterers, hoteliers, farriers, and all of those businesses involved in the local supply chain 콜 오브 듀티 모던 워페어 다운로드.

“It is for these unexpected situations that cancellation insurance is imperative 다운로드. However, it’s not just cancellation insurance for the event organisers, but for any business that relies on an event for a considerable part of their income 다운로드. For example, hotels local to large race meets, such as Cheltenham, can add an extension to their insurance to help cover their business should the fixture be cancelled and therefore room bookings cancelled.”

Equine flu is a serious issue but we hope the swift action by the British Horse Racing Authority will limit its impact on the horses themselves, the racing industry and the wider associated business across the UK 삼둥이 이모티콘 다운로드.
