Performances of Horses

The Authority gives notice that Trainers may be approached by a Stipendiary Steward following the performance of their horse to ask if they are able to account for its running. The Trainer's reply will be passed to the Stewards who will either publicise it or hold a Stewards' enquiry. Failure by the Trainer to disclose such information will result in a report being submitted to the Stewards or the Authority.

The Authority emphasise, however, that this procedure in no way precludes any Trainer who wishes to make representations personally to the Stewards concerning his horse from appearing before them and it does not limit the powers of Stewards to hold full enquiries.
