Point-to-Point regulation changes

The Stewards of INHSC and directors of the IHRB have announced some changes to this years’ point-to-point regulations in this week’s Irish racing calendar.

One of the changes includes the maximum number of runners for all point to point steeplechases shall be:

(a) Not more than fifteen horses in races confined to four year olds only.
(b) Not more than fifteen horses in races confined to Novice Riders only.
(c) Not more than seventeen horses in all other races.

If upon inspection there is a need to reduce the maximum number of runners, the Inspector of Courses shall state the revised number in his report. Such figure shall be the maximum number permitted to run on the day and it shall be publicly announced before the commencement of the first race.

Another includes an update on vaccinations

24.(ii)(a)(iii) A declaration shall not be accepted for a horse unless a Vaccination Certificate against Equine Influenza in accordance with the provisions of Rule 91 has been approved by the IHRB by 12 noon on the day following the closing of entries.

However, should a Point to Point Meeting be rescheduled with original entries to stand, the Vaccination Certificate against Equine Influenza must be approved by 12noon on the Wednesday prior to the rescheduled fixture.
