Horse Racing – Under Siege by Drones?

There’s no doubt that horse racing is one of the most thrilling sports to go and watch. These animals are trained rigorously to make sure that they can race at their best, and the entire event is one which is worth attending.

 

However, there’s also a genuine risk that these kinds of activities can be interrupted and taken over by people who want to sabotage and cause harm. We might not know how they plan to do this, but there is one tool these people have to create havoc with, and that’s drones. 

Horse Racing:  A Potential Risk?  

Even though we are making headway with drones with regard to standards and regulations, these new rules aren’t coming into play for a while. This delay means that there’s a window of opportunity for people to commit crimes and cause mayhem with drones and find it’s harder to police and counteract. 

 

Consider then, the potential implications for something like horse racing. People can look to disrupt the race meeting by blocking the course, or worse buzzing the horse’s mid-race, post-race or even prior to. This could have a major impact on the commercial betting side if horses are targeted to influence betting outcomes. It makes the whole sport unfair and ruins racing as a whole.
