APPLEBY SPRING HANDICAPPING – DRAW FOR STARTING POSITION

24May

Further to concerns raised by the BHRC and Licence Holders, the Handicap Panel reviewed the Draw for Position conditions given for the Appleby Spring Monday Heats.
After full consultation of all panel members, the panel determined that as the Heats and Final are all under the same event then the Draw for Position in all races for the event has to be the same. As a split had been made in one or more heats for Owner/Trainer/Driver, under the Handicap Rules all horses must ballot for position within grades:
9. Draw for starting position
[b] If Promoters or Race Framers split for Owner, Trainer or Driver then all horses must ballot for position within grades. If no split is made for Owner, Trainer or Driver then preferred draw may be used.

The Race Sheets for Appleby Spring have been updated to reflect this decision. Apologies for any inconvenience.
