HRI Introduces Measures Designed To Improve Field Sizes Declaration Deadline to be Extended for WFA Races with Less Than Five Declarations ==================================== 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 February. 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 receive a greater percentage of prize- money (2nd placed horses 20%, 3rd placed horses 10% and 4th placed horses 5% - compared to the current percentages of 17%, 8% and 5% respectively). Prize-money will also be extended from four to five places in all races (the fifth horse to receive 2.5%) and to six places in all races with a value of €40,000 or more. CLIENT ONLINE SYSTEM REGISTRATION ====================================== Trainers who have yet to register for the HRI Client Online System are reminded that they need to do so as soon as possible. For futher information please contact Elaine Burke on 045-455415 NOTICE TO TRAINERS ===================================== We would like to remind all Trainers that it is their responsibility to immediately notify Horse Racing Ireland when an animal leaves his/her yard, dies or is gelded as outlined in Rule 148 (vi). Any breach of this Rule will incur the penalty of a fine of not less than €130.
