From keepy ups to big breakfasts…

Horse Racing

With racing in Britain suspended currently due to the Covid-19 pandemic, its participants are finding novel ways to entertain themselves. Here, PA Media takes a look at a few of them:

Many will have seen the current social media #StayAtHomeChallenge which sees people attempting to do as many keepy ups as they can with a toilet roll.

Flat jockey Luke Morris had a go – but it did not go quite to plan…

Harry Cobden decided to wind up his boss Paul Nicholls while sat in front of a huge cake.

Trainer Jamie Osborne is one of the more vocal presences on social media in the racing community and he provided some light relief by staging his own race – with croquet balls.

But perhaps the best clip in recent days was posted by leading Flat rider Ben Curtis’ wife, Shauna, who looks like she may have another jockey in the family one day in the shape of their son, Brodi.
