Racing Post ups international content to replace shortfall in British racing

The Racing Post has committed to delivering ‘all available global racing content’ to both its customers and partners, as the sport faces an unprecedented time of cancellations and postponements.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Racing Post has scaled up its coverage of horse racing content from territories where racing is continuing, including USA, South Africa and Hong Kong. This will be supported by the group’s full service for Irish horse racing and British and Irish greyhounds.

Earlier this month, the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) confirmed that it had temporarily suspended all UK racing events until the end of April, due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns.

Discussing the effects of COVID-19 and how the group is supporting partners’ racing products during the shutdown, Spotlight Sports Group B2B director Eugene Delaney said: “This is an extremely challenging time for everyone involved. The safety of our staff, customers and partners remains our top priority and we have done everything possible to ensure our own employees are safely working from home.

“Our expert editorial and tipping teams are focused on delivering content for our partners and customers and we have very quickly scaled up our international racing capabilities to deliver this new content to existing partners.

“Across the Racing Post app, website and newspaper we are covering a broad range of racing from across the globe. With racing still happening in a number of territories worldwide we will continue to provide expert content to help engage customers on our partners’ websites.”
