Trainers: You can now return unnamed horses in training using RÁS. Owing to greater requirements in the traceability of horses and to comply with rules surrounding record-keeping of horses’ whereabouts, HRI now provides a facility for returning unnamed horses through RÁS.
From the commencement of the 2022/2023 National Hunt season which starts at Down Royal on 2 May 2022, there are a number of changes to the balloting Directives (HRI Directive 10) that are coming into effect.
Trainers are reminded that Horses rated 102 or less over hurdles that have run in at least 4 or more Handicap Hurdles (Handicap Hurdles with any rating band) may be allowed straight into a handicap chase on a weight equivalent to their hurdle mark. All cases are at the discretion of the handicapper.
From 1st January 2022, the primary course and booster schedule for Equine Influenza (EI) vaccinations were amended.
The IRE Incentive scheme is a new initiative from Horse Racing Ireland designed to stimulate and fortify Irish thoroughbred breeding, racing and Sales.
Jockeys are reminded of their obligation to prepare VIES returns to Revenue. Any queries should be directed to Revenue or your Tax Advisor.

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.
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.
