Ian Popham and Danny Hiskett came in to ride work this morning. Hopefully we will have some runners in about ten days time.
Interesting reading in the Racing Post today about the ROA AGM. Hopefully BHA Chairman Steve Harman, is correct in hoping the government will have exclusions on certain immigration following Brexit.
The industry is very short of staff, especially since the migration of skilled workers from India and Pakistan has stopped. As the Chairman points out, the industry has been doing a lot to attempt to attract staff and hopefully this approach will help the government realise that racing is doing all it can to attract skilled and specialist staff.
