The BHA's Industry Response that was published yesterday evening and which I touched on on Thursday is here.
As I touched on on Thursday we had been hoping that this package would include a direct financial stimulus to encourage the retention of horses in training; which self evidently would have gone a way towards helping the Industry, and the contribution it makes to the national fiscal GDP, come out the other side of these difficult times in sufficiently good shape to continue to make the contribution that it does.
From the point of vu of a relatively small Yard there is no doubt that, for us and other Yards and Trainers in a similar position (witness for example Tom Dascombe's article in the Post earlier this week), it is something of a disappointment that this has not been included in immediate fiscal package announced yesterday evening.
The horses, the staff, Mike and I are all conscious of the pressures that are being created; I am about to speak to my fellow Trainers and our Industry representatives and I will be in touch in the first half of next week; one positive to take from yesterday's BHA announcement is that there does seem a fair chance that we may be able to get back on the track on a regional basis from the middle of May.
I would always be pleased to speak on the telephone and I am only sorry that people are not able to visit the Yard.
