STANHOPE 8th September – Handicapping Update


It has been brought to the attention of the BHRC that the Race Framing at Stanhope with Preferred Draw Heats & Final may contravene Handicap Rule 9[b]:
Draw for starting position
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.

This issue has been debated between the Handicap Panel who have instructed (by majority) that the Heats & Final must be a Ballot for Position.
Promoters have been updated.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
