Understanding the rule-makers as well as the rules is vital. In our latest Meet the Regulators series podcast, we speak to some of the UK's most important regulatory bodies, taking a deep dive into the current industry demands of an increasingly regulated world.
In this second episode, Alexandra Agnew, Associate in Mishcon de Reya's Private Department, and Neil Baylis, Partner in the firm's Competition Group, are joined by Director of Integrity and Regulation at the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), Tim Naylor. We learn more about the greatest challenges being faced in horseracing in 2022, and among other points, discuss the potential lessons the BHA has learnt from other regulators such as the FA on BLM and gender equality. For example, while women and men compete on an equal basis in the race itself, does this translate in the Weighing Room?
Our guests also speak about the impact that the pandemic has had on the sport's longevity, and actions the BHA are taking to adjust to the shifting expectations of regulation in the sporting industry.
