Urgent Notice to ALL Racecourse Bookmakers.

Due to a number of Bookmakers failing a recent age verification test, the Gambling Commission’s Enforcement Department has written to those failing.

Our own testing results are still disappointing and we must improve and if you have any doubts about a customer appearing to be under 21, you need to challenge them to prove that they are at least 18.

All On course Bookmakers should be aware that as a result of a warning by the Gambling Commission the BRBA have engaged Serve Legal to perform AV tests on ALL Northern Racecourses. Regrettably the pass rates for ALL those tested are still below expectation and we must warn ALL Bookmakers to be more vigilant. Obviously we are writing to BRBA Members to give them their results.

Following the robust warning from the Gambling Commission on the poor pass rates with AV testing in our sector we have engaged Serve Legal to do random tests in the North and the first results throughout June are very disappointing and we will be writing inform members of their results.

Would ALL involved please continue to be vigilant as your licence is at risk.

On the 3rd July at Thirsk Races, 6th Regiment Royal Logistics Corps will be utilising the infield, where they are setting-up ‘camp’ and are expecting to entertain circa 350 of their soldiers for racing.

Thirsk therefore proposes to open 3 pitches, allocated by the contract to traders who are independent of each other, and replenishment will take place in both areas.

Message for Cheltenham Bookmakers Saturday 15 December

I would like to thank all of the the hardy bookmakers and their staff who demonstrated great tenacity and perseverance by braving the wet & stormy weather last Saturday to provide a betting service to those racegoers that did venture outside for the value!

Merry Christmas and I look forward to welcoming you back on New Years Day with fingers crossed for much kinder weather.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Urgent Notice Regarding Data Payments

On behalf of our members who attended the Seminar at Dewsbury and were advised not to sign the TTV agreement we instructed the BRBA’s Solicitors to establish what payment will be made for the period to 31.03.2018 by the FRB to match the £21 per day paid by the BRBA. The FRB’s Solicitors reply is attached which unfortunately is self explanatory. All updates will be posted on this website.
