Horse racing to return in May?

Harry Howes | 9 April 2020

Next month is the favourite to see the season get back underway

Horse racing could return in May, according to the latest odds from Coral.

UK sport is currently at a standstill due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with no indication as to when it could resume.

Racing fans are desperate for the season to get going again and our traders have shortened May from 15/8 into 6/5 to be the month we get back in the saddle.

Meanwhile, previous favourite June has seen its odds grow, with the month now at 7/4, having previously been 6/4.

“The wider situation, which will ultimately dictate when UK racing can begin again, is obviously changing on a daily basis,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

“But there is now greater confidence behind a resumption as early as next month.”

When will racing resume in the UK:

May 6/5

June 7/4

July 9/2

August 10/1

September of later 10/1
