The BHA has published the fixture list for 2013, confirming an increase of eight in the overall number of race meetings to make a total of 1,464.
The BHA and Aintree have announced several modifications to the Grand National, including moving forward the start by 90 yards.
John Dunlop has announced his retirement as a trainer after a career lasting 46 years during which he won ten British Classics.
Fixture re-distribution could lead to the closure of more racecourses unless the BHA acts firmly, says ROA President Rachel Hood.
ROA Chief Executive Richard Wayman says increased prize-money is needed to sustain fixtures at current levels in 2013.
There's change at Aintree after it was announced that managing director Julian Thick will be leaving to be replaced by John Baker (pictured).
