We are all aware of the importance of starting races on time, despite the fact that on many occasions in Australian thoroughbred racing, it doesn’t seem to be quite so critical. Most will have received a draft copy of the long-awaited new regulations covering race starts in this Country. Whether many of you have spent time pouring over the lengthy document is another thing, but in any case, the Trainers & Drivers Assn. is currently preparing a submission including some concerns and suggestions relating to the regulations.
Obviously, we are interested to hear from anyone who has any thoughts or opinions on the draft so, if you can’t be bothered sending in your ideas to HRNZ yourself, feel free to email me and, if they are additional to our points and are a valid concern, I will include them in our submission.
