Ireland Ready to Race With a Week's Notice

A week would be all racing in Ireland needed to restart in the event of an all-clear from the government, with the sport remaining "racing ready" after the latest meeting of the Horse Racing Ireland board.
Ireland remains in lockdown until at least May 4, but the country's chief medical officer April 17 gave a positive outlook on the spread and impact of the coronavirus, providing some optimism that restrictions may potentially start to lift in the near future.
While any announcement from government is key to the resumption of racing, Brian Kavanagh, Horse Racing Ireland's chief executive, suggested how the strategies put in place by the sport's authorities allowed for a quick response.
