Racing Post to resume print publication 

Racing Post has today announced it will resume publication and nationwide distribution of its print newspaper on June 1st to coincide with the resumption of British racing closely followed by Irish racing on June 8th

Joining the daily publication on the return will be Racing Post weekly publications, Racing Post Weekender, and the Racing and Football Outlook.

Production of the newspaper had to be temporarily suspended for the first time in its history in March after global sports, and particularly horseracing had been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the downtime, Racing Post has produced a reduced digital version of the newspaper online covering the fallout and resumption plans alongside reports on global racing and sports where it has been able to continue.

Tom Kerr, Racing Post editor.

Horseracing in Britain is scheduled to return at Newcastle on Monday, June 1st, according to the BHA's initial schedule for the resumption of the sport, while Naas will host the comeback fixture in Ireland when the sport returns on June 8th.

Top-quality racing will return with four British Classics and Royal Ascot taking center stage in June in Britain, with the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas rescheduled for Friday, June 12th and Saturday, June 13th in Horse Racing Ireland's revised schedule. All events will be behind closed doors and subject to strict government guidance around social distancing and hygiene requirements.

Racing Post will have coverage of every race at every meeting from the revised schedule as well as in-depth interviews with racing's biggest names, tipping from renowned tipsters Paul Kealy and Tom Segal and features on the resumption spearheaded by award-winning writers Alastair Down and Lee Mottershead.

Commenting on the return of the Racing Post, editor Tom Kerr said: "It’s been an incredibly difficult two months for all those involved with racing on these shores. The temporary halt in production of the newspaper in March was something no one could have predicted earlier in the year but I’m delighted to say we are coming back better than ever. The team at Racing Post is prepared for the resumption of racing, and although it will be in a new world to the one we left behind we’re excited to be part of it."
