2020 Racing Season

The 2020 racing season at Salisbury has now finished.  Horse racing resumed in the UK on Monday 1st June. The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) worked closely with the Government and Public Health England providing detailed protocols for racing to be staged safely “behind closed doors” i.e. with no general public admittance.

Salisbury raced on seven days in 2020 – 11th July, 9th, 13th & 21st August, 3rd & 11th September and 1st October.  

A few stats for you!

7 racedays; 60 races; 563 runners

Leading owner: Hamdan Al Maktoum – 5 winners

Leading trainers: Richard Hannon, Clive Cox, Roger Varian – 4 winners

Leading jockeys: Jack Mitchell, Hector Crouch – 6 winners

Big race winners: Regal Reality (Group 3 AJN Steelstock Sovereign Stakes); Happy Romance (Group 3 Shadwell Dick Poole Stakes); Alpinista (Listed EBF Upavon Stakes); Cobh (Listed EBF Stonehenge Stakes).

Other highlight: The race meeting on Sunday 9th August which was showcased on ITV3.  The sun shone which made everything look even better for the TV coverage!
