Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

 NON RUNNERS, RESERVES AND FURTHER INFORMATION

If you are the trainer of a horse which becomes a non-runner or you are the trainer of a reserve, you must contact the Non-Runner line (045-445645) no later than 1½ hours before the time fixed for the running of the first race to declare your horse as a non-runner or alternatively to declare the reserve as a runner or non-runner. If you have not declared a rider for the reserve you must do so no later than 1½ hours before the time fixed for the running of the first race. Failure to nominate a rider shall render the declaration of the reserve invalid.

If you are the trainer of a horse where no rider has been nominated to the Registry Office after the deadline fixed for the nomination of riders, then a rider must be nominated to the Non-Runner Line or in writing to the Clerk of the Scales not less than one and a half hours before the time fixed for the running of the first race. Subsequently, the trainer or his authorised representative will be required to give a verbal explanation to the Stewards.

Trainers can also use the Non Runner Line to declare a possible 2lb overweight for a rider they nominate on their reserve, if applicable. Also, this number can be used to declare a winner’s penalty.
