Non Runners News


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.

Welcome to the I.H.R.B

As and from 1 January 2018, the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board is the regulatory body for all horseracing in Ireland.  The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board is a company limited by guarantee set up by the Turf Club (established 1790) and the Irish National Hunt Steeplechase Committee (established 1866) for the purpose of carrying out the regulatory and licensing functions for Irish horseracing.

The new body is responsible for protecting the integrity and reputation of Irish horseracing in Ireland.  An All-Ireland body the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board will continue to develop the professional services provided by these two bodies in the regulation of Irish racing for over 200 years.
