All betting is off after a horse flu outbreak in Britain
Feb 8, 2019
British horse racing has been shut down after officials spotted an outbreak of equine influenza; all race meetings have been postponed until at least the middle of next week, and the betting industry is feeling the pressure. Bookmakers and betting companies have said that they are losing tens of millions of dollars while races remain shut down, as they claim that betting on horse racing represents a quarter of all sports bets in the country. However, bookies have found a way to turn things around and are now taking bets for how long the outbreak will last, so it's nice to see that fans are putting a positive spin on the situation.
