Betting in Hong Kong is at similar levels to last year as cash customers who previously used betting shops have switched online. Jockeys need not wear masks during the race. Tentative steps are being taken to allow more people at racecourses.

The Victoria Racing Club, Australia, says turnover from betting on horse racing is actually higher than before coronavirus although total income is less (because of the reduced income from other sports). Jockeys are also split into 'green' and 'gold' teams. Their minimum riding weight has been raised slightly and they use multiple scales to limit interaction.

The British Horseracing Authority is still liaising with government over its intended return on 1 June.

Irish racing chiefs have issued a 78-page document outlining protocols for its resumption a week later, with a deep clean of all racecourse premises ordered before and after every meeting. No-one aged over 70 will be allowed at Irish tracks in the initial stages - ruling out the attendance of successful veteran trainers such as Jim Bolger, Jessica Harrington and Dermot Weld. The showers and saunas for jockeys will be closed.

In France access is restricted to two people per horse, and their names must be submitted 24 hours before the meeting. Unlike Hong Kong, jockeys must wear masks in the race.
