HRI Introduces Measures Designed To
  Improve Field Sizes
  Declaration Deadline to be Extended
  for WFA Races with Less Than Five
  Horse Racing Ireland will be
  introducing a number of measures
  designed to improve field sizes, and
  therefore the competitiveness of
  racing, starting on Monday 1st
  For a 3 month trial period, from
  the start of February to the end of
  April, in every Weight-For-Age race
  where there are less than FIVE
  declared runners at the 10am
  declaration time, there will be an
  automatic supplementary time period of
  15 minutes during which additional
  declarations may be made for that
  race. Such declarations will only be
  accepted by TELEPHONE. No withdrawal
  of a declaration (including any new
  declarations made after 10am) may be
  made within this supplementary time
  period. HRI's Racing Administration
  System (RAS) system will continue to
  display the number of declared runners
  for this extended time period.
   HRI Announces Prize-Money to be
  Extended to 5 Places in all Races
  Also, as previously announced, from
  February 1st for National Hunt racing
  (and March 20th for the Flat), HRI
  will change the distribution of prize-
  money so that placed horses will

  money (2nd placed horses 20%, 3rd
  placed horses 10% and 4th placed
  horses 5% - compared to the current
  percentages of 17%, 8% and 5%

  fifth horse to receive 2.5%) and to
  six places in all races with a value
  of €40,000 or more.
