Horse Racing in Ireland is now in its third week since the return to action at Naas on Monday, June 8th.
Horse Racing Ireland in consultation with the IHRB have developed a Covid-19 protocol document for key personnel necessary to run race fixtures behind closed doors.
This document details Covid-19 protocols for each industry group and the procedures which must be undertaken by all racecourses hosting race fixtures, to ensure that racing will resume in a safe and appropriate manner for everyone.
Educational webinars have also been produced by HRI and IHRB to bring the Covid-19 return to racing protocols to life. It is incumbent on everybody in the industry to familiarise themselves with the new protocols, to safeguard everyone's health and wellbeing.
The videos can be viewed HERE.
Members of AIRO will have been aware that, for some time now, the Council have been working towards changing the legal status of the organisation from an Association to that of a Company Limited by Guarantee.
AIRO Racing CLG would also like to draw owners’ attention to the HRI Press Release of Wednesday 1st April.

Any comments which owners wish to make in relation to racing and its return can be made by emailing email@example.com and they will be passed to our owners representative on the HRI board.
Racing CLG would like to take this opportunity to thank HRI, for its continued hard work at these difficult times. We wish our members all the very best at these times and look forward to the safe resumption of racing in the future.
