Maintaining Your Horse’s Health with P.H Winterton
With the news that this year’s Grand National has been cancelled due to the spread of the coronavirus, it’s more important than ever to maintain the health of your horse.
Sporting events are being cancelled for the foreseeable future, with the flagship horse racing event, due to take place on 4th April the latest to be culled.
Here is a statement from Sandy Dudgeon, Senior Steward of the Jockey Club,
“Public health must come first.
“We were working on a plan to stage the Grand National behind closed doors given its importance to the racing industry and beyond but following the new government measures confirmed this evening to help to tackle the coronavirus outbreak, this is not a viable option.
“I know this is hugely disappointing news for the many people who work in our sport and the many millions who were looking forward to this year’s event, but very sadly these are exceptional times, and this is the responsible thing to do.”
