RACING | Horse Racing returns to Hereford and Mental Health is the topic of the day

Horse Racing returns to Hereford Racecourse today and sadly due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the raceday will be held behind closed doors.

Hereford Racecourse welcomes Jump racing back to Hereford for the first time this season with the ‘Now We’re Talking’ Season Opener raceday today. The country’s leading jockeys will be back in action on the track. The fixture will be behind closed doors but you can watch all racing live on Sky Sports Racing.

The ‘Now We’re Talking’ campaign, is led by Worcestershire Health and Care Trust and aims to raise awareness of local mental health support across Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
