The Emirates Racing Authority (ERA) has announced that all races in the United Arab Emirates this weekend will be conducted without spectators, due to the threat of COVID-19, the strain of coronavirus that has spread from China around the world.

ERA officials said meetings March 5 at Al Ain Racecourse, March 6 at Jebel Ali, March 7 at Meydan and March 8 at Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club would be run with no crowds. Only horse connections, media and sponsors will be allowed to attend.

Other than the lack of spectators, races will be conducted in the same fashion as always with the results being official.
