“British racing has consistently and continuously improved its record on welfare outcomes over the last decade. However, Parliament has recently sent a clear message to our sport that we must raise our ambitions for welfare further.”
All races run over the last 11 years at the Festival were analysed in the detailed 67-page report covering more than 5,400 runners. There have been more than 300 fallers in that time.

“As part of staging world-class jump racing we are committed to delivering the very highest welfare standards.”
