  2. DUAL ACCEPTORS

    Selection Preference for this meeting, in the first instance, will be given to horses that are not already accepted into a race(s) at another meeting.

This condition will not apply to races that are covered by specific series or race conditions; e.g. NZ Sires Stakes Board Administered races.

  3. LATE NOMINATIONS

    In the event Nominations are extended for any races or the meeting, selection preference will be given to those horses that Nominated at the original closing time. Except in the case of Non-Win races, where Field Selection Regulations take precedence or where specific race or series conditions are Programmed. No late Nominations will be permitted to transfer from the race that they have nominated for, unless the club requires it.

  4. ELIGIBILITY

    Any horse is eligible to nominate & accept for a race that has a higher Rating than it has.

This does not apply where conditions are detailed in the race programme. Owner, Trainer & Driver splits will not be taken into consideration if the race is split.

  7. HORSE ATTENDANT

    Owners, Trainers and Drivers are advised that should they be required to attend a judicial enquiry a starters assistant will be made available after each race for the purpose of returning their horse to the horse stall area.
