Support to maintain the integrity of racing is one of HBLB's priorities for levy expenditure under the Improvement of Horseracing. HBLB contributes to the integrity of racing in several ways. The total amount allocated to Raceday Services grants (previously known as Integrity and Regulation grants) for 2014 is £16.4m (2013: £16.4m). These grants contribute towards racecourses' costs in the following areas:
Racecourses are charged Fixture Fees by the British Horseracing Authority to cover the cost of the licensed officials, the security and veterinary raceday officials, drug testing and other costs that are deemed necessary to ensure that the high standards of integrity demanded by the Rules of Racing are met for every fixture.
Camera Patrol and Photo Finish
Racecourses are also required to ensure the provision of camera patrol and photofinish integrity services to agreed specifications set by the sport's regulator.
