Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) is organising a ‘National Open Morning’ for all registered trainers in Ireland. The morning is to take place on Saturday 18th May 2019 and will see a nationwide promotion of trainers and in-turn racehorse ownership. Over 30 trainers have signed up to participate at this stage.
The event will allow trainers host existing and potential new owners, showcase their facilities and raise their profile nationally. HRI will make a contribution towards the cost of hospitality and/or promotion. HRI will also be actively involved in assisting all trainers to maximise their individual open days, while a national PR and marketing campaign will aim to promote and raise the profile of trainers and racing nationally. All those attending the morning will have to pre-register with HRI so numbers attending can be limited.
To register your interest email [email protected] as soon as possible. Further information and details will be issued in due course.
Trainers are advised that the following document compiled by the IHRB (Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board) may provide some answers to questions and queries which have arrived out of the current Equine Influenza outbreak in Great Britain.
Details of the Equine Influenza requirements when travelling to the UK with a runner can be found on the link below:

Practical, hands on, equine industry training is available to all, training is provided free of charge but applicants must register beforehand.

Trainers are reminded that they must keep all horse in training records up-to-date on the RÁS system as per Rule 148. I.H.R.B. stable inspections are based on the records submitted to Horse Racing Ireland via the RÁS system.
Please note that it is now mandatory that any markings submitted to Horse Racing Ireland for naming, duplicate passports or markings updates MUST BE TYPED.
