Racing will return behind closed doors at Greyville on June 1
1 of 1

Racing in South Africa is set to resume on Monday after a break of more than two months. 

The country's National Horseracing Authority announced on Thursday that the first meeting since the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of the sport on March 27 will be an eight-race card at Greyville. 

All race meetings will take place behind closed doors for at least the month of June. 

The NHA announced that field sizes will be reduced to 12 runners per race aside from Pattern races, in which 14 runners will be allowed. 

Jockeys will be restricted to riding in one region of their choice, while horses will also not be allowed to travel between regions except on a permanent basis. 


The Racing Post newspaper will be back in shops to mark the return of British racing on Monday, June 1! With extensive coverage of all the racing, interviews with the biggest names, tipping from our renowned experts, writing from the likes of Alastair Down and all the cards and form, it's your unmissable guide to all the action. Pick up your copy on Monday.
