UK Horse Racing Cancellation

William Hill supports the BHA’s actions as they are in the best interests of equine welfare and we hope this cancellation prevents a wider outbreak.   Of course we do not want a more extended period without racing but the BHA must act in the interests of equine welfare.  William Hill is fully prepared for any cancellations as we have successfully diversified our products over a number of years to provide customers with products that sit alongside British racing as well as providing an alternative during periods of cancellations. We have live racing from South Africa, France, India and the US whilst also showing all Irish racing and selected meetings from Dubai, South Korea, Germany, Mauritius, Hong Kong and South America.  International racing is popular with our customers and acts as an effective substitute when we lose British racing to the weather and football betting has grown substantially in recent years.

 

“We show the largest selection of International and Irish greyhound racing on the High Street along with a wide ranging virtual schedule.  All in all, we are very well placed to handle this unfortunate situation and as was the case in 2001 when Foot and Mouth surfaced, our customers have a wide range of alternative products including international racing coverage as well as other products such as football and virtual racing, so we hope to minimise any disruption,” said Nicola Frampton, William Hill’s Director Of Retail.
