Please see below for horses eligible to run in the Red Mills Irish EBF Hurdle final on 28th October. Entries for this race close tomorrow, 22nd October, at 12 noon.
The Directors of the IHRB using their powers under Rule 22 have approved the modification of the following Rule effective from 19th October. Rule 91 (v) - The IHRB must be satisfied that the certification of vaccination is in compliance with this Rule 91 before a Horse may enter Racecourse Property or run in a Race and shall be entitled to request evidence of same. The vaccination certification must have been approved by the IHRB by 5pm the last working day prior to the day of declaration.
Please note that as per yesterday’s government announcement (Oct 5), unfortunately owners are unable to attend the races when they have a runner. This is in place for 3 weeks with government to review the status at that stage
The Health Screening Check-In Area will open 3 hours before the first race and close 30 minutes before the last race. Attendees who arrive after this time will not be permitted to enter the racecourse. The only exception will be for the first race meeting behind closed doors at a racecourse whereby the Health Screening Check-In Area will open 4 hours before the first and close 30 minutes before the last. Attendees who arrive after this time will not be permitted to enter the racecourse.
Irish trained horses are permitted to participate again in all British races other than Class 5 and 6 handicaps/classified stakes on the Flat, and Class 5 handicaps over Jumps. Any such runners would remain subject to the relevant British Government regulations in place at the time. The new restrictions are intended to balance the importance of GB-trained horses being given an opportunity to run, especially in low-grade handicaps, with the requirement to improve the quality of racing and see the best possible horses compete, and encourage international competition.
This approach will remain under constant review with the possibility of a return to tighter restrictions in the future if circumstances change, including all changes to relevant Government regulations.
From Wednesday August 12, it will be a requirement for those working and attending race meetings to wear face coverings at all times, inside and outside. Your continued co-operation with Covid-19 protocols is greatly appreciated, and this policy will be kept under review.
