In light of the BHRC’s commitments to Raslab and their subsequent rescheduling of the fixtures for 2020, the IHRA racecourse committee have agreed to change the dates of the BHRC eliminators of the series, in order to keep fairness in stakes programme.
The revised schedule of dates for the eliminators is as follows:
Red John Memorial, Cork
Juvenile Stakes Finals
The above dates will allow UK trained horses to avail of the two eliminators in both Tir Prince and York, with the option to compete at the IHRA’s largest and richest grass meeting at the Red John Memorial.
Due to the circumstances outside their control, the IHRA racecourse committee have also decided to alter the points system for the final, to ensure fairness for all nominations, whereby all eligible horses’ points will be based on their best three performances during the eliminations. The points awarded remain unchanged at 16 points for first, 8 points for second, 4 points for third, 2 points for fourth and 1 point for fifth.
