What do the British Racing Authority do?
Without the BHA, horseracing would not be the beloved sport it is in Britain today. It organises everything from issuing the licenses and planning the fixture lists to setting the handicaps and regulating the races at all courses throughout the Flat and Jumps seasons.
The Jockey Club works with the BHA to bring enthralling events to racegoers all over the country, from Aintree to Wincanton – and, indeed, to secure a long-term future for the sport.
Welfare is at the heart of this partnership, too; you can find out more about the horse-comes-first philosophy here at Racing Explained.
