Down Royal boss Emma Meehan has spoken of her pride that the Lisburn track will make history by becoming the first racecourse in Ireland to welcome back spectators.

Its prestigious Ulster Derby meeting on June 18 and 19 will be open to a limited number of spectators following the decision by the all-island governing body Horse Racing Ireland to allow punters to return to tracks.
