12-Apr-2014HANDICAPPING RULES AND REGULATIONS 2014
The Handicap Panel have decided to suspend the Lift System and Mercy Drop System from 1st April 2014. This is not a retrospective measure, the lifts per run will be applied for 2013 performances.
For handicapping purposes in 2014 £1 will be equal to €1, i.e. a horse racing at Portmarnock and winning €300 will have that amount added to the handicap of the horse regardless of whether the horses handicap is registered in Euros or Sterling and vice versa.
The issue of whether Maiden and Novice horses should be allowed to compete in Conditioned Races has been referred to the Handicap Panel for review.
