Hello and welcome to the SBC News 90, here’s today’s top stories:

The government has been urged to clarify the ‘UK’s status as a third country’ and how it will impact the listing of animal health purposes following the end of the transition period, with thoroughbred transporters requiring authorisations to transfer animals across Europe, and EU transporters to operate within the UK.
As the transition period ends, UK racing will require a recognition of ‘general stud rights’, to identify thoroughbreds and allow the movement of registered horses.
