For unraced 2yos and 3yos only run over five, six and seven furlongs. Entries open 9am Thursday 5th August and close 5pm Wednesday 11th August.
The Pat Smullen Golf Classic, in aid of the Drogheda Memorial Fund, will take place on Monday, 13th September. Please see full details below.
In view of the requirement for one stable for every declared runner at racemeetings, Horse Racing Ireland would like to remind Trainers that every effort will be made to ensure we can obtain the maximum number of runners that the stable capacity limit will allow at all racemeetings. Trainers are asked to note that field size limits in races are being altered right up to declaration time (10am) to maximise the number of runners each day based on stable capacity.
The IRE Incentive scheme is a new initiative from Horse Racing Ireland designed to stimulate and fortify Irish thoroughbred breeding, racing and Sales.
Weatherbys would like to thank all trainers for the important part you played with the introduction of the Vaccination App last year.
It has been positively received and was a vital part of return to racing and ongoing racing protocols.
Weatherbys would like to inform trainers that the upcoming rollout of the Weatherbys ePassport will incorporate the existing Vaccination App.
The Weatherbys ePassport is the world’s most advanced equine digital passport – in its simplest form it is a single, secure platform for all regulatory and legislative requirements relating to identification, health, welfare, movement and ownership.
You will be hearing more about the ePassport and its additional functionality in the coming months.
For now though, Weatherbys just wanted to make you aware that with effect from 10th June, access to the Vaccinations App will be via the ePassport.
Whilst you will notice changes to the screen layout along with additional new sections and functionality, you will still have access to all your previous information and can continue to upload vaccinations as before.
Should you require any more information or clarification regarding the pre-clearance programme and the Vaccination App or ePassport please call Weatherbys on +353 (0) 45879979 and ask to speak to any of the team – Claire O’Gorman, Nicola Phelan, Kym O’Brien or Emma Mcdonnell, who will be happy to help. Alternatively please email [email protected]
Owners are set to return to racing from Monday, 7th June. Please click below for information on the process involved.
Vaccination notices will be available on RÁS from Tuesday 13th April, to assist trainers with vaccination information. Please see attached for full details
HRI and Equuip, in association with Weatherbys, will be hosting online demonstration sessions to assist with any issues that trainers and secretaries may be experiencing when using the Weatherbys vaccination app. If you are interested in attending a session, please email [email protected]
IHRB have announced that Trainers now have the option to declare non-runners and reserves directly on the RÁS system. While they can continue to use the non-runner line (045-445645) to declare non-runners and reserves, this facility is now also available at any time on RÁS. Trainers are reminded the deadline for declaring reserves to run is by 11am while the deadline for non-runners is by 90 minutes before the time of the first race. However, to allow reserves the chance to run, non-runners must be declared by 11am.
Trainers please see details of upcoming Business Growth Programmes for the Equine sector run by Local Enterprise Offices.
Please see revised Covid-19 protocols as racing continues with limited capacity

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.
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.
All permitted attendees to race meetings will be required to complete a pre-return online questionnaire by no later than 6pm two days before their first race meeting and by no later than 6pm the day before each race meeting they are due to attend after that. On completion of the health screening questionnaire a barcode specific to you will be generated (this will be a different barcode for each day). You must bring this barcode to the race meeting for scanning on the day - it can be on your phone or printed out.
Please log on to http://wwww.ihrb.ie/health-screening for further details where you will also find raceday information specific to each racecourse.
Please remember you will need your AIR Card (if applicable) or name on a pre-determined list AND your Health Screening Barcode to gain entry to each race meeting.There will be no exceptions.
