Here’s what Ruby Walsh had to say…

I was down at Limerick for a race meeting behind closed doors recently and it was probably the most boring day of my life.

There was nobody to talk to – not that we were allowed to anyway. It was such a long day.

Horse racing is more than just a sport. What most people see is the shop window at each race meet, but the list of the amount of people usually working behind the scenes is endless.

But the Irish Horse Racing Board have trimmed the race meets back to the absolute bare essentials and it is remarkable how few people you actually need in order to run a race meeting.

When they are behind closed doors, there is no one there about from the actual races, no bookmakers, no catering companies. And because it is an outdoor event, it is easier to maintain that social distancing.

But it is different in the UK.

THERE IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT REASON RACING WAS CLOSED DOWN THERE AND ONLY BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IN IRELAND – AND IT COMES DOWN TO AMBULANCES.
